Labeled Red for Vigilance, Cianjur Proposes to Extend PSBB
Cianjur regency received a red label based on the evaluation of the West Java Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB). Cianjur is also likely to apply the next PSBB or phase II.
Head of Cianjur Diskominfo, Tedy Artiawan, said, there were several indicators so that Cianjur was given a red label for the alert level of the spread of COVID-19.
Although positive cases are still few and not yet included in the red zone, the spread of COVID-19, ODP and PDP which continues to grow every day makes Cianjur a red label for vigilance.
From the data collected detik.com, currently the ODP number in Cianjur has reached 860 people with seven of them dead, while for PDP as many as 66 people with 18 patients died.
"If the zone is still yellow, the red one is just a label for the level of vigilance. So it is different, it does not mean Cianjur red zone, but must be very vigilant with the ODP and PDP which continues to grow," Tedi told AFP on Sunday (05/17/2020) .
In addition, continued Tedi, Cianjur number of travelers who had reached 37 thousand people, and continues to grow every day is also an indicator that makes Cianjur included in level four and labeled red for vigilance.
Acting Regent of Cianjur, Herman Suherman, said that although these two indicators put Cianjur on the red label, there were several indicators that showed positive results. Where there are around 180 villages in Cianjur regency that still have green zone status, there are even some villages that do not have PDP or ODP.
However, based on the results of the evaluation, Cianjur is likely to extend the PSBB.
"Cianjur actually would not want PSBB, because it is squeezed by regions with COVID-19 red zones as well as conducting further PSBBs. We are working on partial PSBBs," he concluded.(mud / mud)
