Indonesian worker hospitalized

2 Nov, 2014

A domestic worker in Indonesia, the world’s fourth-biggest country by population, is hospitalized after returning from Liberia. The unidentified worker is placed under a 21-day quarantine at the Madiun hospital in East Java province, on the archipelago country’s main Java island. The worker’s name isn’t released yet. Around 6.5 million Indonesians work in domestic service in other countries, mostly in Asia. This is the first suspected case in the country, which has strong economic growth but a relatively underdeveloped medical system.
