“The family finally brought him to several hospitals in Depok City and South Jakarta by taking an online taxi. But, the patient died in the taxi after being rejected by the hospitals,” Irma recalled.

LaporCovid-19 also questioned the data on bed occupancy ratio (BOR) claimed by the Jakarta City Administration. 

“Why does the BOR still stand at 80 to 87 percent while practically it has reached more than 100 percent?'' A LaporCovid-19 volunteer wrote to Kompas.com on Tuesday, January 19.

The volunteer said that none of the hospitals claimed to have a vacant bed in their Intensive Care Units (ICU).

LaporCovid-19 urged the Jakarta Administration to disclose all information about the availability of ICU beds so that the public will be well-informed.
