TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Bogor City Administration in West Java is currently preparing to transform the local GOR Pajajaran youth and sports complex into a Covid-19 field hospital (RSL) that is scheduled to be operable this month.
Bogor City general hospital president director Ilham Chaidir said that it has worked along with the health agency upon adding the inpatient treatment facilities for Covid-19 patients and that it is 50 percent completed.
The main reason behind the establishment of this field hospital is to anticipate the spike in the number of people treated for coronavirus infection as Bogor City has a limited amount of beds available.
“The RSL at the GOR Pajajaran can add at least 70 hospital beds,” said Ilham Chaidir today.
Apart from preparing the physical aspect of the facility, the local administration is also rushing to manpower that will be stationed there. Bogor City general hospital currently has 120 available beds with additional 30 to bump up the total to 150.
