Thai naval team managed to get out of Wuhan before it was locked down. If you are wondering why they are there, the S26T submarines are being built in Wuhan, which is the shipyard where the Yuan class is made.

Algeria also bought a Chinese training ship a few years ago

Algeria is best known for having purchased two C28 corvettes some years ago. These are 2800 ton corvettes, although I think its a heavily modded 053. The new corvettes however, would be smaller than these. Them going back to China for repeat business suggests they are satisfied with these ships. 96 meter length sounds like what they are planning to buy is based off the 056 platform.
