Jakarta, TOPNews Indonesia —
Government Spokesperson for Covid-19 dr. Reisa Broto Asmoro said, there are three steps that can be taken as individuals who are responsible and want to get out of the current Covid-19 emergency situation.
First, protect yourself, don’t be a new case, practice with strict discipline all health protocols now together.
“Wear a double mask, keep your distance by staying at home, wash your hands as often as possible,” said Reisa.
Then, reduce going out of the house or reduce mobility and stay away from crowds because the carriers of this virus are humans, the more humans gather in one place the more likely the virus to spread.
SecondIf confirmed positive, there is no need to panic and fight over the ICU room at the hospital. Report to the local Puskesmas or Task Force if symptoms are mild, use telemedicine and wait for help to arrive.
“Remember you are not alone, we will help each other, hospitalized or not is the doctor’s decision,” he said.
Reisa reminded that when undergoing self-isolation, be diligent in measuring oxygen saturation, body temperature and blood pressure, continue to consult with doctors and family via virtual channels, don’t break communication.
In the event of a deteriorating body condition, regular communication will ensure that help will arrive quickly and you will be helped immediately.
Third, he continued, if the contact is close, report it immediately to the Puskesmas, make sure you are tested, be brave, and take responsibility.
Know with certainty the condition of the body so as not to become a source of transmission that other people don’t expect. If it is negative, it can help the tracking team or tracing team ensure it is safe from transmission.
According to Reisa, the first step will contribute to reducing the number of confirmations and reducing the death toll, drastically lowering the transmission rate.
The second step will reduce the hospital burden, bed occupancy ratio (BOR) and increase the cure rate.
While the third step is to help districts and cities achieve the testing and tracing targets mandated by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Home Affairs.
The combination of the three helps your district and city get out of Emergency PPKM.
“Believe us we can, Indonesia, we can do it!!! May God protect and bless the Indonesian people,” he said.
