Tingkat Kematian Turun, Kasus Positif Corona di Indonesia Terus Bertambah

81

Hi, Tuesday.

Good morning. How is your self-isolation so far? For us, we’ve never spent as much time in the kitchen as we do now. We’ve tried cooking chicken, rice, some dessert, and boy, it’s still 10 AM.

Outside of your window, things have become more worrying now. Two provinces in Indonesia; North Maluku and Jambi, just announced their first confirmed corona cases. We see more people get sick (579 confirmed cases nationally now!) and we’ve been questioning why we still hear the dizzying noise of vehicles outside of our house. Didn’t everyone get the memo to stay home? Well, despite the situation, this morning, don’t forget to take a deep breath and tell yourself: This, too, shall pass.


Hello, home. How are you holding up?

Well, what can we say?
Pengumuman terbaru dari pemerintah kemarin menyebutkan bahwa jumlah kasus positif virus corona di Indonesia terus bertambah.

Berapa jumlah tambahannya?
Per Selasa kemarin diketahui ada penambahan 65 kasus positif corona which brings the total number to 579 cases from all over Indonesia. Dari jumlah tersebut, 30 pasien sembuh dan 49 meninggal dunia.

What about the fatality rate?
Tingkat kematian, you mean? Well, also per kemarin, tingkat kematian penderita corona di Indonesia adalah 8,46 persen, sedangkan tingkat kematian per Senin adalah 9,34 persen. Artinya, tingkat kematiannya turun. However, angkanya masih di atas rata-rata dunia yang ada di angka 4,3 persen.

I see. Well, I heard we’re getting some help…?
That’s true. Kemarin, pemerintah melalui Kementerian Pertahanan mendatangkan sembilan ton lebih bantuan alat kesehatan dari China ke Indonesia. Bantuan yang terdiri atas 7,2 ton protective clothing, 128 kg N95 mask, 110 kg disposable gloves, 700 kg disposable mask, dan 775 kg goggles itu udah tiba di Lanud Halim Perdana Kusuma, Senin kemarin dengan diangkut Pesawat Hercules.

What are we gonna do with that stuff?
Kata Menhan Pak Prabowo Subianto sih, alat-alat ini bakal segera didistribusikan ke berbagai rumah sakit yang tengah menangani kasus corona. Selanjutnya beliau juga bilang bahwa nggak menutup kemungkinan pemerintah bakal ngirim pesawat yang lebih besar lagi untuk mendapatkan alat-alat kesehatan.
