The Indonesia Expat reports that the men engaged in sexual activity have been identified. 

The nurse was tested for the virus and came negative and now has been handed to the police for legal action while the patient who is positive has been shifted to an isolated room. 

'This case has been transferred to the Central Jakarta Police. We have secured the health worker to become a witness and asked for further information,' the New York Post reported Lt. Col. Arh Herwin of the Regional Military Command as saying.

'Meanwhile, the patient continues to undergo isolation at the Athlete's House,' he added, referring to a former Asian Games athletes accommodation village that was transformed into a coronavirus hospital.
