Indonesian officials fear an outbreak of disease could take hold amid severe flooding in the capital Jakarta, which has already left 29 people dead.
"We fear that diarrhoea and dysentery may break out, as well as illnesses spread by rats," one official said.
More than a third of a million people are thought to have fled their homes amid Jakarta's worst floods in years, caused by days of torrential rains.
While floods were said to have receded in some places, more rain is forecast.
The floods have affected much of the city of at least nine million people - with estimates of the flooded area ranging between nearly 40% and 75%.
Apart from those swept away or drowned, a number of people were killed by electrocution, police spokesman Ketut Yoga Ana said.
Officials said the unsanitary conditions could cause an outbreak of disease, with fresh water and electricity services down in many areas.
