The Jembrana regional government has announced that the number of Covid-19 cases in the region has significantly declined.
The Head of the Jembrana Health Agency, I Gusti Bagus Ketut Oka Parwata, confirmed that the peak of the Omicron transmission in Jembrana has passed as the number of Covid-19 cases has started decreasing.
“The peak of the Omicron transmission in our region has passed in February. I hope there won’t be any more surge in cases in the future,” Parwata said on Tuesday (1/3).
Parwata explained that less than 40 Covid-19 cases were recorded at the end of February, which was much better than early February when the officials recorded over a hundred cases every day.
“When the transmission surged in early February, all quarantine facilities including clinics and hotels reached their maximum capacity, forcing asymptomatic patients to undergo self-isolation at home,” Parwata added.
Despite the surge in cases in February, Parwata stated that the mortality rate of Omicron was lower than what they experienced from the Delta variant in 2021. Further, most of the patients who died from the virus were senior citizens who suffered from comorbidities and unvaccinated patients.
He urged people in Jembrana to join the vaccination program and keep complying with Covid-19 protocols to prevent another surge.
