Coordinator of the Kemayoran Athlete's Village COVID-19 Emergency Hospital General Mayor Tugas Ratmono stated that centralized isolation facilities also offered health services and medical assistance to asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic COVID-19 patients, so that those with moderate and severe symptoms could be treated at the referral hospital.

He compelled all stakeholders to always follow health protocols in a disciplined manner.

Practicing vigilance by complying with the 5M health protocols was the most important aspect, so that COVID-19 cases did not spike again, he stated.

"I have been here for more than a year. From the data, if there is negligence in implementing health protocols, then the number of patients who come in will definitely increase. The number of patients at the Athlete's Village accurately describes the condition of the COVID-19 pandemic," Ratmono pointed out.
