ASHLAND, NE — On Friday night 57 evacuees from Wuhan, China landed in Omaha and were taken to Camp Ashland to be quarantined for two weeks to make sure no one has contracted the coronavirus.

One of those evacuees is Amanj Habibi, who boarded the flight in Wuhan and made stops at the Travis Air Force Base in California and then in Texas before finally arriving in Omaha.

Habibi documented his journey on Instagram. The above video gives you an inside look at what the evacuees have seen and heard as they have returned to the United States.

3 News Now will be talking to Habibi this afternoon and we will have a more detailed account of his journey along with more video on 3 News Now at 10 pm.
