Britons evacuated from Wuhan regret coming home

Like many of the Britons who were evacuated from Wuhan, the centre of the coronavirus pandemic, it was a difficult journey for Anthony May-Smith, involving a frantic last-minute dash to the airport through the locked down city in January. All those repatriated from Wuhan underwent two weeks of quarantine in the Wirral, and after a brief stint of normality, May-Smith is now back in lockdown, wishing he had stayed put in China.

“It’s just really weird, getting thrown back into it,” the 26-year-old from Lichfield said. He never imagined that the UK would end up in a lockdown: “It just makes you think, all the hassle that we went through to come back, was it really worth it?”
