A family of three in the Karangasem region have been picked up by police officers to undergo quarantine in a government facility.

 The Head of the Bebandem Police Department, AKP I Wayan Gede Wirya confirmed that police and military officers of the Karangasem region decided to pick up a family who had been self-isolating at home and relocate them to the government facility in Karangasem. “We decided to pick up these people in accordance with the recent government’s instruction to implement a centralized quarantine program for asymptomatic Covid-19 patients.” AKP Wirya said on Monday (16/8).

     As The Bali Sun previously reported the central government through the Maritime and Investment Coordinator Minister, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan criticized the way the Bali provincial government is handling Covid-19 transmissions on the island. As a response, the Bali Governor was instructed to implement a centralized quarantine program to reduce Covid-19 transmissions through family clusters. “After knowing that the woman of this family tested positive with Covid-19, her husband and her baby were also relocated to the quarantine facility in order to get proper treatment from our medical staff.” AKP Wirya added.

The three of them were relocated with an ambulance from the Bebandem Clinic by authorities that were equipped with proper protective suits. The Karangasem regional government has prepared a total of 404 hotel rooms for local residents who are confirmed positive with Covid-19 in order to easily supervise, treat and observe each patient. During the relocation process, the authorities also explained and educated the patients about the importance of undergoing centralized quarantine for asymptomatic Covid-19 patients in Bali.

"importance of asymptomatic patents" -->

Of yes, nothing could be more important. They, and others around the world too, cure healthy people and people with no symptoms. Is it a suprise for anyone as for why hospitals and quantine facilities have been full?

Paragon of idiocy.

Leave people alone. 90-95% of them, unless they have some heath problems, have been and will keep to recover by themselves. Without vaccine. Without treatment.

Treat only, and only, serious cases, which constitute only 10-5% of all the cases.

Thank me later.

@Romon, there have been people who developed symptoms later on in private isolation and died. Hospitals were full. Now cases have declined that give hospitals and ICU wards more availability at least in Java.

In quarantine facility some folks can be monitored individually for progress or need further hospitalization. Recommendations to self isolation have been highly criticized. Individuals can check in digitally for medical advise. Vitamins and medications under a government scheme have been sent to homes with individuals known for having tested positive for covid.

The number of deaths rose in self isolation where clusters of families live together. It escalated the spread of covid to one or two unvaccinated members of one same family have died. One may be asymptomatic and one may have with compromised underlying health issues. In Indonesia, it is common for one or two families to live together under one roof.

Was this done with or without their consent? Did the family want to go to the government quarantine facility in an ambulance with a baby? Did they have a choice, did they say yes we agree?

@Sage, If people are in isolation and develop symptoms they need to seek immediate medical help. In quarantine facility they can be monitored individually for progress or need further hospitalization.

@Sage, What's your deal... Indonesia isn't the only country that would referred people into quarantine facility. If they are sick they need to be isolated and recover since there is a low tracing scheme in Bali or elsewhere for that matter.

…actual this is quite disturbing to me coming from the land if the free.

@Mike A, It is more disturbing to see people are still reluctant to get vaccinated or wear mask in the beloved land of the free and the brave.

As of tuesday Aug 18th, the US has reported more than 1,000 covid deaths in a single day. So don't get me started on this issue. There are selfish and ignorant people mostly in Southern States who contributed to this drastic surge in the last few weeks.
