Jakarta (ANTARA) - The government of Bali province has prepared 408 health workers, comprising specialists, general practitioners, and nurses, for the G20 Summit in Bali on November 15 and 16, 2022.

"We have chosen the best medical personnel to stand by during the G20 Summit in Bali," head of the Bali Province Health Office, I Nyoman Gede Anom, informed in a statement issued here on Thursday.

G20 is an international forum comprising 19 countries and the European Union that work together to handle major issues. Indonesia is holding the presidency of the grouping this year.

He said that the medical personnel will be on standby to handle any health-related issues faced by the G20 delegates.

Before their deployment to the G20 health team, the health workers received training, which included emergency simulations.

The health workers will remain on standby at meeting venues, several referral hospitals, referral clinics, and several hotels where the delegates are staying.

Anom said that 4 mini intensive care unit (ICU) rooms, 23 clinics, and 13 mobile medical teams have been prepared for the summit. The doctors who will be deployed for the summit will include cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and general practitioners.

Then, seven hospitals will serve as referral hospitals for the delegates: IGN Ngurah Hospital, Bali Mandara Hospital, Udayana University's hospital, BIMC Nusa Dua Hospital, Bhayangkara Hospital, and Udayana Level II Hospital.

All the hospitals, clinics, mini ICUs, and mobile medical teams will be connected to the command center.

He further informed that a total of 1,350 beds have been readied at referral hospitals. This number includes beds prepared for delegates who require special treatment in the ICU or need isolation rooms due to COVID-19 infection.
