"No need to worry too much about this virus, be careful not to panic," he said, Saturday (05/23/2020).
Panca said, previously there were 11 patients who were treated for exposure to COVID-19 in Muaraenim District. After undergoing treatment and two tests through the Molecular Rapid Test (TCM) the results were negative.
So the six patients were declared cured and healthy, consisting of five medical personnel and one medical family. The patients who were cured on behalf of Dr. Iqbal, Dr. Nabila, Median Indra, Deka, Dwi Fitriani, Boni (Nabila's husband), and a baby who had recovered first.
"Hopefully the remaining five more people are still being treated following recovery and there will be no more COVID-19 patients," he said.
Panca explained, that for now the Muaraenim Regency Government has its own laboratory and TCM tool so that when there are patients whose status is People in Monitoring (ODP) and Patients Under Supervision (PDP) COVID-19 can already be done alone in Muaraenim. However, we still send patients without symptoms (OTG) to be swabbed to Palembang.
According to Panca, at present the image in the community that mentions the hospital as a transmission center can be clarified that transmission is due to medical after work breaks taking off masks or whispering to fellow officers. Because from the results of tracking carried out by the hospital there is no transmission to patients who are treated and vulnerable to contracting.
