This West Java Citizens Who Are Entitled To Take Corona Massive Test – West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil explained in detail the procedure for massive testing of the covid-19 virus or corona. He asserted that this massive test followed the test as conducted in South Korea, namely by various options to conduct the test.
The massive Covid-19 test procedure was changed, not using the word mass. So the number is large but limited to the priority, explained Ridwan Kamil in a video received by the editorial office on Monday (3/23/2020).
Kang Emil, Ridwan Kamil’s nickname, asserted that this massive test was not for all West Java residents but his aim was to find a Covid-19 map of those suspected. This is to break the link, not for everyone, this is for further medical action. So it’s not a census, he said.
He explained that the massive Covid-19 virus test mimics what South Korea has done, because according to the president’s instructions there is no such thing as a lockdown. But the test is incorporated, just like South Korea. The difference is that oppas and ahjudis are disciplined, this is our challenge in West Java, said Kang Emil.
Just like in South Korea, there are a number of options for this massive test, door to door, hospital examinations and drive thru. Who can join? There are three categories, he explained.
The first category is A, which is the most high risk. Those who entered the people under surveillance because they had just returned from abroad were suspected of spreading the corona virus.
In addition, those included in category A are patients under surveillance (PDP). This DewaPoker patient will be tested later, his family too, friends in his complex too, said Kang Emil.
Health workers who are at the forefront in dealing with this virus are also included in category A.
Furthermore, category B, namely public health workers at the puskesmas and also in the clinic or who has a profession of social interaction; high as Babinsa, Babinkantimbas National Police, public officials, immigration officers and airports. This later tests using the drive thru, he explained.
The last category C is citizens who feel symptoms or illness and need confidence whether infected with the Covid-19 virus or not, they have the right to take this massive test by way of drive.
So the conclusion is if you are healthy, not symptomatic, not included in the high risk profession category, do not belong to a group that is very vulnerable to this situation, no need to take a massive test, just at home, stressed the governor.
Ridwan Kamil again appealed to residents to be disciplined to keep their distance and not panic. Support us by keeping your distance and staying at home, he said.
