Indonesian Government Successfully Repatriated 243 People from Wuhan, China

A total of 243 people were successfully repatriated by the Indonesian Government Repatriation Team. They consist of 237 Indonesians living in Hubei Province, one foreigner (spouse of an Indonesian woman), and five members of the Advance team of the Indonesian Embassy in Beijing. All of them have arrived safely at Natuna.

All have gone through multiple health checks by the Chinese health authorities and the Indonesian Doctors Team at Wuhan International Airport following the health protocol, to ensure that they are all in good health. During the transit in Batam, before being transferred to the Air Force aircraft, all passengers underwent another health check by the Batam Port Health Office, and all were declared in good health.

Four Indonesian citizens chose to remain in China due to family reasons, and three others were unable to meet the health requirements for flying. The Indonesian Embassy in Beijing continues to communicate with the three Indonesian citizens, and is coordinating with the university dormitory and the Chinese authorities to monitor their conditions and ensure their needs are fulfilled. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also contacted their respective families in Indonesia.

Upon arrival at Natuna, the passengers are undergoing a 14-day observation process at the Raden Sadjad Air Base.

The Ministry of Health, the Indonesian Military, and the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) have prepared public and health facilities for their safety and comfort.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with Indonesian Missions in Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Hong Kong continue to monitor the condition of Indonesian citizens in various regions in China.
