“Some of these rooms have to be opened and used for the treatment of COVID-19 patients because Nabire Hospital is one of the referral hospitals for corona virus patients, and indeed only one hospital is quite good in Nabire,” he said.

He continued, thus willing and unwilling to have to open to service patients suffering from other diseases but also patients who were confirmed positive for COVID-19.

He said, the treatment room that was opened was regulated in accordance with national standards or those in the handling procedure for COVID-19.
