All 654 evacuees from coronavirus-hit Wuhan test negative, discharged from quarantine in Delhi-NCR

While all the 654 evacuated by India from Wuhan stand discharged from quarantine, a large IAF military transport aircraft, Globemaster, which is awaiting green signal from China to fly there with medical consignments for Wuhan, will bring back the remaining Indians in return flight.

NEW DELHI, Feb 19: The 654 people, including seven Maldivians, brought to Delhi from Wuhan in China, the epicentre of the novel coronavirus (covid-19) contagion, early this month have been discharged in batches from the two quarantine camps set up in West Delhi and neighbouring Manesar in Haryana after all of them tested negative for the infection. Most of them were students.

They were flown in by two Air India Boeing flights on February 1 and 2 and sent straight to the observation centres set up for the purpose. The facility at Chhawla in West Delhi, run by the Indo- Tibetan Border Police, had 406 people and the health centre at Manesar run by the Army acommodated the rest of the evacuees numbering 248.

While the Army camp discharged 28 people on Monday and 220 on Tuesday, the ITBP sent home 358 on Tuesday and the remaining 48 on Wednesday, the Union Ministry of Health said.

The airports have been put on alert to screen for suspected carriers of the virus, especially travellers coming from China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Thailand and Singapore. The Centre had also despatched monitoring teams to keep a watch at the northern border along Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Sikkim and Bengal for anyone crossing in with suspected symptoms of coronavirus.

India's largest military transport aircraft, all-weather C-17 Globemaster, ready to fly to mChina with goodwill medical aid consignments to be delivered to Wuhan for the treatment of coronavirus patients there, is awaiting Chinese permission for the flight that also is expected to evacuate the remaining Indians living in and round the afflicted city.

Around a 100 Indians have responded to the call from the Embassy to those who missed the chance in the first two trips to register themselves if they wished to be evacuated by the return flight. Other countries too are in the process of evacuating their nationals.

Today, with one more Indian on the ship, Diamond Princess, anchored and quarantined off Tokyo, testing positive for coronavirus, the number of Indians affected aboard has gone up to six. The ship has become the second largest habitat for the virus. Of the 3711 on board, including crew, 355 have already tested positive for coronavirus.

Over a thousand passengers who left another ship, Westerdam, at Phnom Penh, to take flights without any health check, has become a source concern as they are likely scattered across the world by now posing serious risks of coronavirus (covid-19) spreading far and wide.

Meanwhile, in Wuhan, the head of the hospital treating coronavirus patients died of the infection. Earlier, the doctor who first detected the eruption of the epidemic in December last had also died of coronavirus infection.

Over 2000 people have died in China so far since the start of the infection. A few deaths due to coronavirus have been reported from Taiwan, Iran, Japan, Hong Kong, Philippines and France so far. People in around 25 countries have contracted coronavirus, having visited China or coming into contact with those who came from there.
