The Government of Jayapura Activates Sahid Hotel Become Referral Hospital for Covid-19

Sahid Hotel located in Entrop-Jayapura is being activated as a hospital while referring to the handling of Covid-19 patients by Jayapura city Government.

Realizing that this will cost a lot of money, the Mayor of Jayapura, Benhur Tomi Mano continues to encourage its application so that the handling of all corona patients can run well.

Every coronavirus patient will be treated at the five-star hotel. It does not require a small budget, but today we submit a decree related to this matter to the Deputy Governor.

And we appreciate that because we received a positive response from the Papua Provincial Government, we received funding of Rp. 5 billion", said Mano in Jayapura, Wednesday (August 5, 2020). 

Even though he replaced the Sahid Hotel as a referral hospital, Tommy said it did not rule out the possibility of self-isolation being applied to residents who were exposed.

The Mayor Tomi also encouraged in September 2020, Jayapura City community was able to implement a new normal adaptation program.

Thus, it is strongly committed with Papua provincial government to be able to control the transmission of Covid-19.

“We will work together with all parties to press the transmission, so after that we can apply a new normal adaptation. We also urge the public to be disciplined and live the health protocol as expected", he concluded.
