Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Health Ministry has readied medical service facilities for delegates in the upcoming G20 Summit that will be held in Bali on November 15-16, 2022.

Director of medical service governance at the Health Ministry Sunarto noted in a press conference here on Thursday that medical services would be offered around the event location for the 600 delegates scheduled to participate.

The series of events will be hosted at the Apurva Kempinski Hotel for the meeting, Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) for the gala dinner, and Mangrove Tahura where the symbolic tree planting will be conducted.

"At the main location, there will be a mini ICU, clinic, and mobile team. Our mini ICU's specifications (include) patient bed, an examination bed, a table, chairs, and a mobile ventilator if there is a heart or lung emergency. In addition, there are bedside monitors, tubes, emergency kits, and such," he elaborated.

Sunarto said heart specialists and anesthesiologists as well as trained doctors and nurses will be on standby in the mini ICU.

The ministry has also readied standardized clinics at 22 hotels that participated in the G20 Summit and also dispatched trained general practitioners and nurses.

In addition, the mobile team -- medical team on standby in ambulances -- for the delegates are dispatched in the seven G20 activity zones located in Nusa Dua, Kuta and Tuban, Jimbaran, Sanur and Uluwatu. In the event of an emergency status from the clinic, the team members will move to bring the delegation to the referral hospital.

The ministry has also readied seven international referral hospitals -- IGM Ngurah Hospital, Bali Mandara Hospital, Udayana University Hospital, Siloam Hospital, BIMC Nusa Dua Hospital, Bhayangkara Hospital, and Tk II Udayana Hospital -- located nearest to the activity at the Apurva Kempinski Hotel for the delegates.

Medical care for VVIP guests is not much different from that for the delegates. They provide mini ICU facilities, clinics, and mobile teams, as well as designated international hospitals. The only difference is that the State Secretariat Ministry is the one giving the provisions rather than the Health Ministry.
