Can Non-Medical Evacuation cover me if I’m evacuated out of China?

Last Updated:

Unfortunately, the Non-Medical Evacuation benefit does not include coverage for an evacuation out of a country to avoid the outbreak of a virus.

Non-Medical Evacuation provides transportation from a place of danger to a place of safety during a natural disaster or a time of civil or political unrest. This does not include the outbreak of a virus, such as the coronavirus.
