The governor regretted the dishonesty of the patients during the treatment. Because the consequences of dishonesty, bring disaster to anyone, including doctors, nurses and health workers.

While Dr. Tirta, a doctor who is now a volunteer of the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), asks all people to be honest in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. "Honesty is the most important. Because, the most dangerous of COVID-19 are people without symptoms (OTG), those who do not have any symptoms but are infected. Well, these people must be honest when doing medical examinations," said the doctor well-known citizens.
He continued that he did not need to be afraid and covered up if they were indeed suspected of having contracted COVID-19. The method is simple, the community only needs to explain their contact history, have they ever traveled from the red zone and others.
"Don't be afraid, you will not do anything. Precisely if you are not honest, the danger is the people around you and medical personnel. Why should the country prepare a good defense, if the people are still not honest," he said.
Dishonesty, continued Tirta, will damage the system that has been built. People need not be afraid, if it is declared OTG and in good health, they will only be quarantined at home and monitored by medical personnel.
