Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia during the Inauguration of the Tanjung Duren Pertamina Modular Hospital, 6 August 2021, Jakarta
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
This morning, I, together with Minister of SOEs and President Director of state-owned oil and gas company Pertamina, inspected Pertamina Modular Hospital in Tanjung Duren, Jakarta.
We should express our gratitude that as of this morning, the figures show that the pandemic in the Islands of Java and Bali has started to slow down, especially in Jakarta. I always monitor the bed occupancy rate daily, every night. Six or eight weeks ago, the bed occupancy rate at Wisma Atlet COVID-19 emergency hospital was at around 90 percent. This morning, I received information earlier that the rate is currently at 25 percent
However, we must remain vigilant, careful, prepared, and alert. So, I am very grateful to Minister of SOEs and Pertamina who have prepared this Pertamina Modular Hospital with a capacity of 305 beds equipped with HCU [High Care Unit] and ICU [Intensive Care Unit] facilities. Even better, it also provides special ICUs for children and infants as well as for mothers, so they can provide health services for mothers and children.
Once again, I highly appreciate it, I hope this can benefit the people, the community.
This concludes my remarks.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. (FI/LW)
