Baton Rouge Couple Await Evacuation From China Amid Coronavirus Outbreak


A couple from Baton Rouge is hoping to return home soon after being contained in China amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

Officials say the Meyer family was traveling to China for a funeral when the pandemic occurred, rendering them trapped overseas.

The couple's daughter Casey says she recently got an email saying her parents have snagged two seats on the next evacuation flight, but they don't know when that flight will be.

The news comes as more than 13,000 people have been infected globally by the coronavirus and a total of 300 have died.
