External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said in a tweet that the Indian Embassy in Beijing is constantly checking on the health and well-being of the Indians in China.

Yesterday, the Prime Minister’s Office reviewed India’s preparedness to deal with the deadly coronavirus amid mounting global concern over the increasing number of cases in China and several other countries.

Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister P K Mishra chaired the high-level meeting where the officials apprised him on the recent developments, preparedness and response measures associated with the spread of Coronavirus.
