Wisma Atlet Tower 8 and 9 to Accommodate Surges in Covid-19 Patients

Wisma Atlet Tower 8 and 9 to Accommodate Surges in Covid-19 Patients - The government finally opened Tower 8 and 9 of Wisma Atlet Pademangan, after an increase in problems in DKI Jakarta. The tower, which was not originally used, will be used as a special isolation place for patients with the Corona Virus (Covid-19), especially people without symptoms (OTG).

This method was implemented because four towers, namely 4,5,6, and 7 have been used to serve patients with mild and moderate symptoms, since last Saturday (19/12).

"The other day in the approval of a meeting, we have determined that we will center the OTG in Towers 8 and 9. Furthermore, those who have symptoms at the Wisma Atlet Hospital in towers 4, 5, 6, 7, and this method will be carried out if the above is completely filled 80 %," said Wisma Atlet RSD Coordinator Major General TNI Job Ratmono at a journalist meeting.

Currently, he continued, the bed occupancy rate (BOR) in Tower 5 at Wisma Atlet Kemayoran Hospital has exceeded the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation of 60%. Meanwhile, towers 4, 6 and 7 contain an average of 75%.

The condition of Tower 5, which was originally an independent quarantine flat for Covid-19 OTG patients, the faction chose to stop serving OTG patients in the four towers of Wisma Atlet Kemayoran Hospital.

The work also asked the local government to remain active and concentrate on testing, tracing and follow-up (3T) efforts. Meanwhile, residents are expected to remain obedient in carrying out 3M which includes # wearing masks, #washing their hands, and #jagajarak.

He is also worried that Indonesia's health system will not be able to load Covid-19 patients again, if the increase in cases continues in the future.

"We at the ranks of health facilities have improved the quality, but this has limits. So it's important, please don't get infected together, "Job said.

Initially, the Field Commander of the Kemayoran Athlete Hospital Lt. Col. Muhammad Arifin said that the Kemayoran Athlete Hospital Hospital had not received positive Corona Virus patients without symptoms, since Saturday, December 19, following the filling of inpatient beds in towers 4, 6 and 7 the average was 75%.

Arifin also hopes that the local government will immediately provide independent quarantine places for asymptomatic patients, like hotels that have formed partnerships. This is because the Athlete's House in Pademangan already contains nearly 80%.
