Six Indian citizens were not airlifted because they were suffering from fever. A Coronavirus quarantine facility has been set up at the airport for Indians returning from Wuhan, where they were checked for symptoms of the coronavirus.

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) has set up a special ward with 600 beds in south-west Delhi’s cantonment area for people airlifted from China, where suspected patients of the coronavirus will be kept under observation. A special team of doctors has been deployed for this purpose.

With the coronavirus becoming increasingly-lethal in China, every country is taking steps to ensure the safety of its citizens settled there. The coronavirus is continually spreading and becoming life-threatening in China, with more than 260 people dying there from contracting this disease.
