Jakarta (ANTARA) - The bed occupancy rate in health facilities for self-isolating COVID-19 patients in Jakarta has reached 73 percent of the total 11,608 beds, Vice Jakarta Governor Ahmad Riza Patria has said.

Meanwhile, the occupancy rate of intensive care unit (ICU) beds at 140 COVID-19 referral hospitals in the capital has touched 89 percent of the total 1,546 beds, he said while reviewing a vaccination drive at the National University in South Jakarta on Monday.

"Alhamdulillah (Thank God), the bed occupancy rate has declined again to only 73 percent now. May it drop further in near future. The occupancy rate of ICU beds also has fallen to 89 percent," he remarked.

Patria said the recovery rate of COVID-19 patients in Jakarta has climbed to 90.5 percent, while the mortality rate has fallen to 1.4 percent as of Sunday (July 25, 2021).

Jakarta residents must stay disciplined in adhering to the health protocols amid the enforcement of public activity restrictions (PPKM) level 4 until August 2, 2021, he added.

"So, if we all stay at home, follow the health protocols (5Ms/washing hands, keeping distance, wearing a mask, avoiding crowds, and reducing mobility) and adhere to the enforcement of PPKM level 4 in a disciplined and responsible way, Insya Allah (God willing), we will be able to reduce COVID-19 transmission in Jakarta," he said.
