A Papua New Guinea student in Shanghai is calling on his government to evacuate students stranded in China by the Wuhan coronavirus.

Ben Mendel had booked a flight back to PNG through the Philippines but found it had been cancelled when he arrived at the airport.

Mr Mendel says he's unsure if he'll get a full refund.
