The second group of evacuees from the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, was declared disease-free and released from the ITBP quarantine facility on Friday.
The 112 evacuees who have been staying at Chhawla Camp since February 27 were released after the quarantine period and tested negative for COVID-19.
The group consists of 76 Indians and 36 foreigners, including eight families and five children.
The group's foreigners included 23 from Bangladesh, six from China, two each from Myanmar and the Maldives, and one each from Madagascar, South Africa and the USA.
Two tests were carried out on the inmates of the quarantine camp. The first was performed on day 1 and the second test on day 14 of the quarantine time, where all samples were found to be negative.
The Union Minister of State for the Interior, Nityanand Rai, and SS Deswal, DG ITBP, met the group at the center and spoke before a meeting.
The second group also received all of the basic facilities needed at the center, as was the case with previous evacuees.
ITBP doctors performed daily surveillance and monitoring of inmates during the quarantine period.
The ITBP set up the quarantine camp in Chhawla, New Delhi, just 48 hours before the evacuees first arrived in Wuhan on February 1.
The Chawla camp quarantine facility had successfully managed the first batch of 406 people who flew out of Wuhan from February 1-2 and were released after a negative coronavirus test.
The center has successfully quarantined 518 people, the largest number in the country flown from Wuhan to date.
