"The vaccines should orientate the faculty and students of schools about the measure's importance along with health protocol, along with need to sterilize the school grounds."

Indonesia's recent Covid-19 surge has thrown the government's plan to start face-to-face classes for the 2021-2022 school year in limbo.


Indonesia Adds Isolation Wards in Designated Low-Cost Housing

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 number is twice as much as those in the Wisma Atlet Emergency Hospital in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta,” said Minister of Health Budi Gunadi Sadikin in a virtual press conference Friday.

“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,

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. The government has designated the Fatmawati, Sulianti Saroso, and Persahabatan hospitals as centers to treat Covid-19.

Jakarta led the way in the pandemic’s recent daily surge, with 7,505 new cases.
