A charter aircraft around 250 of Indonesian nationals landed at Hang Nadim Airport, Batam, on Sunday.
The Airbus A330, owned by Batik Air airline, arrived from China's Wuhan, the epicentre of a new coronavirus outbreak.
Upon arrival, the evacuees have been accompanied by officers and medical personnel to another plane which will bring them to a military base in the country's northwest Natuna... Еще island, where they will be quarantined for two weeks.
The coronavirus outbreak began in the central Chinese city of Wuhan last December.
The newly-discovered virus has since spread to 23 countries, including Germany, France, Finland Canada and the US, prompting the World Health Organisation (WHO) to declare a global health emergency.
