Strengthening Protection for Healthcare Personnel
The provision of temporary accommodation to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission among health workers was important. Most of the health workers who tested positive for Covid-19 were infected outside their hospitals
JAKARTA, KOMPAS — Amid the ongoing surge in Covid-19 cases, an increasing number of health workers have been infected. The majority of the afflicted health workers have no or mild symptoms. Nevertheless, one doctor who was a confirmed Covid-19 case in Bogor, West Java, has died.
“Many more doctors have been infected with Covid-19,” mitigation team chairman Adib Khumaedi of the Indonesian Medical Association executive board (PB IDI) said on Thursday (10/2/2022) in Jakarta. Healthcare workers were expected to be even more vigilant, as the spike in cases meant the risk of infection was higher.
