He added that Wisma Atlet carried out swab tests on the two, whose identities were withheld for security reasons.

“The nurse’s swab tests came back negative, while the patient’s came back positive. The nurse has been relieved and turned over to the Jakarta Metropolitan Police to legally process his case, while the patient will be back [in Wisma Atlet’s] isolation wards, albeit under heavy security.”

Herwin regretted the incident for its moral and medical ramifications. “Aside from the vice associated with their relations, the two’s actions put other medical workers at risk as it can hasten the possibility of transmitting [Covid-19] to other medical workers,” Herwin asserted.

“As manager of the Wisma Atlet Covid-19 Emergency Hospital, Army Brigadier General M. Saleh Mustafa pledged to increase monitoring of the medical workers and patients to prevent similar incidents in the future.”

The scandal first came to the public eye, after the patient admitted to his actions on social media on December 25. Speaking on his Twitter account @bottialter, the patient uploaded screenshots of a WhatsApp conversation with the nurse detailing their tryst.

The incriminating postings included a picture of a castoff personal protective equipment or PPE allegedly belonging to the nurse.

The Wisma Atlet Covid-19 emergency hospital is treating 4,296 coronavirus cases as of December 23, after the facility discharged 139 people who were given a clean bill of health.
