PARIS (AP) - French automaker PSA Group says it plans to evacuate its expatriate employees and their families from Wuhan, the locked-down Chinese city that is the epicenter of a deadly virus outbreak. PSA Group tweeted on Saturday that the employees will be quarantined in another major city in China, before they are brought back to France. It said transportation, housing and other organizational considerations are being worked out. It did not say how many employees would be part of the evacuation. The automaker did not say how long the period of quarantine would last. However, French medical experts have said the incubation period for the coronavirus appears to be 14 days.
