China coronavirus: Indonesia prepares to evacuate students

Hundreds of Indonesian students will soon be airlifted out of Wuhan, which has been at the centre of a new coronavirus outbreak.

    Indonesia prepares to receive hundreds of students who are being evacuated from China's Wuhan city, which has been at the centre of a new coronavirus outbreak.

    All of them will be quarantined for two weeks and doctors say they are ready for their arrival.

    Despite the outbreak's spread through neighbouring countries, there have been no confirmed cases of the virus in Indonesia.

    But authorities say they are well-prepared if the situation changes.
