The Spokesman of the Jembrana Covid-19 Task Force, I Gusti Agung Putu Arisantha said that residents who haven’t received the Covid-19 vaccine have a higher risk of developing heavier symptoms once they’re infected with Covid-19. He also confirmed that one of the Covid-19 patients who has recently died in Negara Public Hospital wasn’t vaccinated.

“Most of the patients who were confirmed positive with Covid-19 recently haven’t received the Covid-19 vaccine. And according to the data, those people would develop heavier symptoms and perhaps even death from the infection.” Arisantha said on Wednesday (23/6). As a prevention, Arisantha urged all the residents in Jembrana to support the vaccination program by attending the nearby vaccination sites to receive the vaccine as soon as possible. “In line with the instruction from Jembrana Regent, we urge our residents to participate in the vaccination program to reduce having a higher risk of developing serious symptoms.” Arisantha concluded.

Meanwhile the Director of the Negara Public Hospital, Ni Putu Eka Indrawati explained that one of the Covid-19 patients who had died after being treated in the ICU from the 16th to the 22nd of June 2021 developed symptoms such as fever and respiratory problems. “After being treated for almost a week, the patient who hadn’t received the Covid-19 vaccine prior to the infection passed away in our ICU on Tuesday.” Indrawati said on Wednesday (23/6).

Hospitals in several different regions of Bali have stopped their Covid-19 distribution due to lack of vaccine supply from the central government.
