As the number of Covid-19 cases is on the rise, many organizations and nations are pushed to take further actions in the effort to curb the spreading of this disease. However, Indonesia has decided to take matters into their own hands to handle the Coronavirus crisis. The government announced that it is in plans to deploy those infected with the coronavirus disease on an uninhabited island!

According to Bernama, several facilities of a former refugee camp can be transformed into a hospital because it was fully functioning from 1979 to 1996. This island previously housed a former camp that was for the Vietnamese refugees. The camp is located on the uninhabited island of Galang in the Riau Islands.

Indonesia recently had two confirmed cases of Covid-19.

“We shall see if this is the right time to turn the location into a special hospital to treat patients infected with novel coronavirus. Hopefully, this plan will be realised soon and the hospital can be put to use immediately, especially if there are infected patients near Galang Island,” said Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto, the Indonesian Military Commander Air Chief. According to the official, the medical centre would also be used to quarantine those with suspected Covid-19.
