Officials from the Tabanan Health Agency have issued prevention steps in anticipation of a surge in Covid-19 transmission in the area.
The Head of Tabanan Health Agency, Dr. I Nyoman Susila, confirmed that despite having zero Omicron variant cases, Covid-19 transmission has begun to surge in the island.
“We recorded 32 active cases, up from 9 cases a few days ago,” Dr. Susila said on Saturday (15/1).
In anticipation of another spike, Susila provided numerous medical equipment to hospitals in the Tabanan region.
“In preparation for another wave of transmission similar to the Delta variant spread in 2021, we provided 240 available beds to 8 different hospitals in the region,” Dr. Susila added.
Susila also provided 1,000 new oxygen tanks and 100 oxygen concentrators, all of which are stored at Nyitdah Hospital. He even ensured that the officials still had enough vitamins and antivirus supplies for the next six months.
“We plan to treat any potential Omicron patient with vitamins and isolation. Meanwhile, patients that develop heavy symptoms will be treated with the antivirus provided by the central government,” Dr. Susila concluded.
