The Indonesian contingent received an e-mail from the UK Government's National Health Service (NHS) requesting the entire team to carry out self-isolation for 10 days after a person traveling onboard tested positive for Covid-19.
According to the UK's health protocols, airline passengers who are on the same flight with individuals who tested positive for Covid-19 must undergo self-isolation for 10 days.
Initially, the NHS instructed the Indonesian badminton team to undergo the quarantine at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Birmingham City Center until March 23. However, after Indonesia's Ambassador to the UK Desra Percaya communicated with the NHS, the Indonesian squad was allowed to leave earlier.
