Harif suspects that some of Indonesia’s medical workers became infected with the Covid-19 virus because they improperly wore their personal protective equipment.
“Perhaps when they took off the equipment, they were no longer concentrating as they wanted to hurry and finish. That could also be a possibility of the virus’ transmission among Indonesia’s medical workers.”
On July 8, Indonesia’s Ministry of Health said that it has offered incentives to 166,029 Indonesian medical workers.
The realized budget for incentives allocated to Indonesia’s medical workers has reached Rp 278 billion, according to the Health Ministry’s Secretary of Human Resources Development and Empowerment Trisa Wahjuni Putri.
The ministry has handled compensation for death of 32 Indonesian medical workers.
It has allocated Rp 60 billion of the ministry’s budget specifically for compensations for death although Rp 9.6 billion has been realized as of July 8.
Indonesia has only realized 5.12 percent of the national budget designated for the country’s healthcare industry.
