Many of the normal evacuation and travel routes out of Antarctica have been closed due to the coronavirus. The British Antarctic Survey has announced that they have been struggling to remove unnecessary personnel from the station. Originally, they were going to the Falkland Islands before being flown to the UK. This has since been delayed however, and they are now hoping to send a cruise ship that can act as temporary accommodations. This will allow the scientists to remain isolated for the virus as the Falkland Islands reported confirmed cases last week. BAS director Prof Jane Francis has commented that while many of their plans to extract the research team have been cancelled, they will continue to work to bring them home.
