JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The Indonesian Ministry of Health has added an extra 7,000 isolation beds, a day after the country noted its largest number of daily Covid-19 cases at 20,574 on Thursday, June 24.
“The isolation wards, which are for asymptomatic patients or those with mild symptoms, are located in low-cost housing complexes at the Nagrak and Pasar Rumput areas. 4,000 of the beds are in the former, while the remainder, or 3,000 beds, make up the latter.”
Budi hopes the new isolation wards can ease the pressure on Wisma Atlet, “Wisma Atlet initially has 5,994 isolation beds. But since we did not expect the surge of Covid-19 cases to be as high as it is today, we had to increase it to 7,000, as more and more cases arrived at the hospital.
He added that Wisma Atlet will treat patients with moderate symptoms, while those with more serious symptoms will be treated at Jakarta hospitals designated to treat Covid-19 cases
