Police to Probe Bogor Ummi Hospital Directors - News en.tempo.co - Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe police would begin to summon a number of Bogor Ummi Hospital directors today, Nov. 30, following a report by the COVID-19 Mitigation Task Force for allegedly obstructing the task force to examine a patient, Rizieq Shihab.

“The task force officers filed a report on the alleged violation of Law No. 4 of 1984 on infectious disease,” said Bogor Resort Police Chief Sr. Comr. Hendri Fiuser on Sunday, Nov. 29.

Hendri said the police had probed Bogor COVID-19 Mitigation Task Force. “We have collected pieces of evidence, including video recordings and other documents,” he added.

Previous reports suggested that Rizieq Shihab underwent medical treatment at Ummi Hospital due to fatigue. However, the task force helmed by Mayor Bima Arya said the FPI frontman was among people under monitoring for the coronavirus disease since several videos showed that the latter hugged with Depok mayor candidate Mohammad Idris who recently tested positive.

The task force’s attempts to reach Rizieq for a swab test failed because he had passed a test himself with the help of the Medical Emergency Rescue Committee (MER-C). 

Hendri went on to say that his side opened a possibility to summon Rizieq Shihab. “If the result of the examination shows that he is involved in obstructing [the task force] to prevent the spread of the infectious disease,” he said. Rizieq Shihab had reportedly left the hospital on Friday, Nov. 29, 2020.

Bogor's COVID-19 hospitals at near capacity - National - Jakarta Post

Bogor's COVID-19 hospitals at near capacity - National - Jakarta Post

COVID-19 hospitals in Bogor regency, West Java, have shown a rapid increase in patient intake, Bogor Deputy Regent Iwan Setiawan has revealed.

According to Iwan, several hospitals have reached full capacity and some are 75 percent occupied, exceeding the World Health Organization’s (WHO) suggestion of 60 percent capacity.

The occupancy rate increased in the wake of a series of mass gatherings centered around the return of Islam Defenders Front (FPI) leader Rizieq Shihab from self-exile in Saudi Arabia, as well as a long weekend in late October, he added.

These factors have also contributed to the rising number of daily COVID-19 cases since the sixth phase of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB).

“The highest occupancy rate can be seen at hospitals in Cibinong, Ciawi and Kemang. This was caused by the rising trend of daily positive cases. Therefore, we extended the PSBB policy,” Iwan said as quoted by kompas.com. 

He expressed his concerns that the regency was unable to control the spread of the virus. Bogor regency extended PSBB measures for another 28 days.

Having more new COVID-19 cases in upcoming days would mean that the hospitals might no longer have the capacity to treat patients.

Therefore, Agus urged the public to keep implementing health protocols and remain cautious upon conducting activities outside of their homes.

To ease the pressure off hospitals operating at full or near capacity, the Bogor regency administration added isolation rooms for asymptomatic COVID-19 patients as well as those with mild symptoms.

Agus said the administration had collaborated with the Artha Graha Peduli Foundation to use its AGP-SGA Training Center in Cibogo village, Megamendung district, as an emergency isolation facility for COVID-19 patients.

The facility comprises three buildings that can accommodate 66 beds for patients and 21 for health workers. It’s also equipped with bathrooms, a fitness center and public kitchen tents. 

“We are not referring the patients to other regions; we are still able [to accommodate them] as we are cooperating with Artha Graha Peduli in Megamendung,” Agus said.

The Bogor Regency Health Agency announced that as of Saturday, the occupancy rate of COVID-19 hospitals in the area has surpassed 80 percent, with 662 out of the total 812 beds occupied. 

The agency also reported that eight hospitals had already reached full occupancy, namely Sentra Medika Cibinong Hospital, Cileungsi General Hospital, Bina Husada, Thamrin, Dompet Dhuafa, KBP, Permata Jonggol and Anisa Hospital. (dpk)

Rizieq Shihab Escapes from Ummi Bogor Hospital - Indonesia Expat

Rizieq Shihab Escapes from Ummi Bogor Hospital - Indonesia Expat

The leader of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), Rizieq Shihab, is said to have escaped from Ummi Bogor Hospital where he was being treated since Thursday 26th November.

Head of the Bogor City Police, Senior Commissioner Hendri Fiuser, reported the development of Rizieq’s situation to the Head of the West Java Regional Police.

“After being checked by hospital security at 9:45pm on Saturday night, both Rizieq Shihab and his wife had left the hospital room,” Hendri said in his report as quoted by Tempo.

Hendri learned that Rizieq had left the hospital after his staff had collected information at the hospital on Jalan Raya Empang, South Bogor. After communicating with hospital security officers, he understands that Rizieq left the hospital through the back door at around 8:50pm.

“It is suspected that they went through the hospital’s medicine warehouse,” said Hendri.

It is not yet known why Rizieq Shihab left the hospital. Hospital management said Hendri has not provided information regarding Rizieq’s whereabouts.

Previously, news circulated that Rizieq was weak and was rushed to a hospital in Bogor City. The Bogor City government discovered Rizieq’s whereabouts, who then asked him to undergo a swab test for COVID-19, which he secretly did at Ummi Bogor Hospital.

The Managing Director and management of Ummi Bogor Hospital were reported to the police by the Head of the Bogor City COVID-19 Task Force on the charges of not carrying out the procedures for handling COVID-19, despite the hospital being a referral COVID-19 hospital.

From Bogor to Putrajaya: Building strategic trust in APEC - ANTARA English

From Bogor to Putrajaya: Building strategic trust in APEC - ANTARA English

The year 2020 is crucial for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).

Not only are we celebrating achievements after a quarter-century of implementing Bogor Goals for realizing free and open trade, but we are also at a crossroads of choice between conceding to major power rivalries or collaborating to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.

When Indonesia and other APEC Leaders proclaimed the Bogor Goals on November 16, 1994, it was with the hope of bringing together the aspirations of the people in both developing and developed economies.

It was launched to overcome the challenges at that time: Globalization. In those Goals, the target was set for 2020.

Since the inception of the Bogor Goals, APEC Economies have enjoyed significant progress in boosting trade and investment while reducing poverty.

APEC’s total merchandise trade almost quintupled between 1994 and 2019, from US$4.1 trillion to US$19 trillion, with a 6.7-percent average growth annually.

There has also been a trend among APEC Economies to create a more favorable environment for investment and job creation.

There was a declining poverty trend in APEC, as was apparent from a decline in the number of poor people, from 1.4 billion in 1994 to 240.4 million in 2018.

Through the commitment to the Bogor Goals, APEC members recognize that the successful growth and development of their economy rely on the openness and stability of global and regional markets.

However, for the past couple of years, some economies have used APEC not as an engine of collective growth but for projections of power and limited interest, thereby diverting the course of cooperation in APEC.

Instead of moving in unison to higher levels of regional economic cooperation and growth, diverging views have hindered deeper collaboration and sent across an unclear message to the world.

The rising tension and strife between major economies have run contrary to the spirit of APEC.

APEC needs to return to its raison-d’etre: as the premier Asia-Pacific forum of cooperation. It is imperative that it not only survives global challenges, but it also needs to lead the path of global recovery.

Through the first ever virtual APEC Economic Leaders Meeting, chaired by Malaysia, building on the spirit of Bogor, APEC Leaders initiated a new vision into 2040. The Putrajaya Vision serves as the new compass for the next two decades.

It signifies a momentum to solidify strategic trust in achieving an open, dynamic, resilient, and peaceful Asia-Pacific Community by 2040, for the prosperity of the people.

As the premier forum in the Asia-Pacific, APEC must once again leap forward in development. The leap needed this time is not just a leap to overcome the pandemic nor just a jump-start, but the leap that can expedite economic growth after the waves of recession.

APEC must leap forward to establish a new normal of regional growth in future, under the growing opportunity presented by a stronger multilateral trading system, better connectivity, the digital economy, and sustainable development.

A world of quality growth where empowered Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises; women entrepreneurs; and hinterland economic actors would reap benefits from interconnectedness in the APEC region.

At the APEC CEO Dialogue and the leaders meeting, President Joko Widodo highlighted that Indonesia continued to aspire for such quality growth within the APEC and will keep pushing for win-win solutions, concrete deliveries, and mutually beneficial partnerships through this premier forum.

For its part, Indonesia shall contribute to a conducive economic environment through the launch of the Omnibus law, as part of a necessary structural reform to create competitive industries.

This leap is crucial to empower Indonesia’s youth and millennials today to be the leaders in 2040.

As time will bring us to the eventual realization of the Putrajaya Vision, Indonesia plans to stand with its fellow economies and its people to laud the shared prosperity that the vision has brought to the region.

With the benefit of hindsight, we hope to look back to the necessary strategic trust built across the Asia-Pacific region today for our desired future, starting with the vision from Bogor in 1994 and concluding with Putrajaya in 2040.

Bogor Holds Massive Covid-19 Test in Megamendung Post Rizieq Shihab's Big Event - Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, Bogor - Bogor Health Agency along with the 0621 Bogor Military Command (Kodim) held massive Covid-19 tests for residents of Kuta and Sukagalih Villages, Megamendung, following the crowd in the FPI leader Rizieq Shihab’s event.

Cisarua Military Commander (Koramil) May. Gen. Aris Nazarudin Latif explained that 150 residents joined the test held in Sukagalih Village and four of them got reactive results, while in Kuta Village, one of 64 residents passing the test was reactive.

“Out of 214 people who joined the rapid tests, five were reactive,” said Aris, adding that they immediately passed swab tests, and the results will come back in the next two to three days.

The massive test was established to anticipate the emergence of Covid-19 new clusters following a recent event in the area that attracted a large crowd. 

Burhan asserted that the government was still implementing social restrictions so that people are appealed to protect themselves by avoiding crowds and complying with the predetermined health protocol.

Bogor Health Agency Head, Mike Kaltarina, said that her side prepared 1,000 rapid test kits for the two villages. However, the tests were not for the villagers only. “The tests are for anyone, not just the congregation [of Rizieq Shihab],” Mike said.

Jokowi witnesses COVID-19 vaccination simulation in Bogor - ANTARA English

This morning, I came to the Puskesmas in Tanah Sereal in Bogor City because yesterday, I heard of the simulation for vaccination being conducted

Jakarta (ANTARA) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) witnessed a simulation of the COVID-19 vaccine immunization held at the "Harapan Keluarga" community health center (Puskesmas) in Tanah Sereal, Bogor, West Java Province.

"This morning, I came to the Puskesmas in Tanah Sereal in Bogor City because yesterday, I heard of the simulation for vaccination being conducted," Jokowi noted here on Wednesday.

The president arrived at the Puskesmas at 8:21 a.m. local time in the company of Minister of Health Terawan Agus Putranto and Mayor of Bogor Bima Arya.

The head of state then reviewed the community that partook in the simulation. The participants came from various backgrounds, including traders, housewives, civil servants, and online motorcycle taxi drivers.

Participants sat on seats at a distance and awaited their turn in the queuing system.

The participants then approached several tables to check their identity and health condition for the presence of congenital diseases or comorbidities.

After the identities and health conditions of the participants were checked, they then entered the Puskesmas to be administered the COVID-19 vaccine.

"Since I live here, I visit this Tanah Sereal Community Health Center," Jokowi, who lives at the Bogor Presidential Palace, noted.

The government has signed an agreement to procure 143 million doses of vaccine concentrate from China’s Sinovac, Sinopharm, and CanSino pharmaceutical companies, respectively 65 million and 15 million to 20 million. The vaccine is planned to be produced by state-owned company PT Bio Farma.

Apart from China, Indonesia has collaborated on vaccine development with the G-24 technology company from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in mid-August, with a plan to supply10 million doses of the vaccine in collaboration with Indonesia's state-owned pharmaceutical company PT Kimia Farma.

Moreover, 100 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will be obtained from AstraZeneca. The first shipment is scheduled in the second quarter of 2021.

Concurrently, the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology (LBM) is also developing the Red and White vaccine as a domestically made COVID-19 vaccine that differs from the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine.

Bogor's 40 sub-districts to get 240 free Wi-Fi spots - ANTARA English

Bogor's 40 sub-districts to get 240 free Wi-Fi spots - ANTARA English

Cigudeg, W Java (ANTARA) - Bogor local government is installing 240 free Wi-Fi spots in 40 sub-districts to serve locals and enable students residing in blank spots to follow the government's long-distance learning program amid the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

"The free Wi-Fi facilities are installed to fix 240 blank spots," Bogor District Head Ade Yasin told journalists after the launch of the "Zona Pancakarsa" Program in Cigudeg Sub-district, West Java, on Thursday.

The public can avail these free Wi-Fi spots before the end of 2020, Yasin, concurrently heading the Bogor district administration's COVID-19 Task Force, stated.

The COVID-19 pandemic situation has compelled the Bogor district government to implement an online learning system instead of physical attendance of students in class. This policy has been adopted to halt the potential spread of COVID-19 among the students and teachers.

"We are aware of the various challenges we are facing in implementing the long-distance learning mode, such as insufficient infrastructure and lack of effectiveness of learning methods," she revealed.

In addressing this reality, Yasin urged related stakeholders to bolster their synergy to enhance the implementation of the government's mandated long-distance learning program amid the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

The presence of free Wi-Fi spots, under the Zona Pancakarsa Program, is also expected to encourage local residents to boost their online business activities, she explained.

According to the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture, the coronavirus pandemic has compelled the country’s some 68 million students -- from preschools to high schools -- to learn from home.

Jumeri, the director-general of preschool, elementary, and middle schools at the ministry, recently revealed that some 10 percent of the 68 million Indonesian students, or some 6.87 million, are preschoolers.

COVID-19 initially struck the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of 2019 and thereafter spread across the world, including to countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Indonesian government made an official announcement on the country's first confirmed cases on March 2 this year. Since then, all students, including those at universities, are required to learn from home and through the long-distance learning mode.

To help it win the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic that has posed a serious threat to public health and the economy, the Indonesian government has consistently expressed confidence in the potential of COVID-19 vaccines.

Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan recently disclosed that the COVID-19 vaccination would likely commence in the third week of December 2020 as opposed to the early scheduled period of November.
