Australia is considering how to repatriate its citizens in China as the coronavirus death toll rises, with reports more than 100 Australian children are stuck in the region

Government officials are working on an evacuation plan for Australian citizens trapped in the Chinese city of Wuhan with reports more than 100 Australian schoolchildren are stuck in the region.

On Sunday, Foreign Minister Marise Payne said the government would look to assist Australians with travel out of China, with several cities in lockdown as authorities try to contain the virus."We are seeking advice from the Chinese authorities on these restrictions and whether any options are available to international travellers," Senator Payne said.

There are calls for the government to follow the United States' example and charter a plane to repatriate stranded citizens in China. "If there is insufficient ability to transport everyone who expresses interest, priority will be given to individuals at greater risk from coronavirus," the department said. Thousands of foreign students and workers live in Wuhan, a normally bustling transport hub in central China home to a huge steel and auto industry.
