Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesian nationals evacuated from the World Dream cruise ship are maintaining their good health, the Indonesian government's spokesperson for coronavirus outbreak response, Achmad Yurianto, confirmed Friday.

"By today, the sixth day of observation in Sebaru Island of Seribu Islands, Jakarta, all the 188 World Dream crews are in good condition," Yurianto told the press. They have maintained their health since the very first day they arrived as their physical and laboratory tests showed good results, while their coronavirus test results were negative. Furthermore, according to the daily check-up conducted every morning and evening, they are also psychologically fine.

"Hence, we expect that they could return home after a 14-day-long observation process," he added.

Some 18 out of the 188 crews are women. One of them is pregnant and is accompanied by her husband.

During this observation, there were 35 medical staff deployed by the Health Ministry, who consisted of pulmonologists, internists, cardiologists, clinical pathologists, general practitioners, and nurses.
