The national figures comprised former president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY), Health Minister Nila Moeloek, and Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan.
"Mr SBY arrived at around 9:30 WIB (West Indonesia Standard Time), and several other officials also visited," the hospital's security officer, Roid, stated in Jakarta on Tuesday.
SBY stayed at the hospital for some thirty minutes.
A half hour later, Minister Moeloek arrived at the hospital in an Alphard car. However, she evaded journalists thronging the entrance of Kartika Pavilion.
