The Indonesian government has begun using large passenger ships to quarantine COVID-19 patients.

Several regions are taking advantage of the extra space aboard the government-owned vessels.

One quarantine boat is moored in the city of Sorong in West Papua Province.

The "KM Sirimau" is said to have "luxurious facilities" including a cafeteria and places of worship for Christians and Muslims.

The ship has also prepared a number of open areas to be used as sunbeds for COVID-19 patients.

According to officials, the ship can accommodate up to 450 patients who would be placed in both first-class and economy-class bedrooms.
