Papua Covid-19 Task Force Instructed To Oversee Tourist AttractionsJAYAPURA, LELMUKU.COM - The Deputy Governor of Papua Klemen Tinal instructs the Local Task Force of Covid-19, to begin overseeing a number of tourist attractions in Jayapura and its surroundings, to ensure all visitors carry out health protocols to prevent coronavirus transmission.

“We have decided with the Provincial Covid Task Force, the security forces and related stakeholders, they will be more active in overseeing tourist attractions on holidays.”

"The existence of the Covid Task Force certainly ensures the health protocol is executed properly. So that the transmission of coronavirus can be prevented", explained Klemen in Jayapura, Thursday.

Papua Provincial Government does not forbid residents to have vacation in tourist attractions. It's just that, from the reports he received, most visitors at a number of tourist attractions did not implement health protocols properly.

“So it is feared it could become a Covid transmission. And this is what we don't want to happen. In fact, until now corona transmission in Jayapura and surrounding areas is still very high. Wear the masks and keep social distancing, follow health protocol wherever we are.”

Besides being active in tourist attractions, Covid Task Force also watch over every street at night. Because there are many people gathered at night without running health protocol.

“Because the success to deal with the corona virus is not in the Covid Task Force or the government but community discipline in complying with health protocols." he concluded.

 It is known, up to March 17, 2020, there are 2720 positive cumulative cases of Covid-19 in Papua with 1431 treated, 1259 cured and 30 dead.  Jayapura City has the highest transmission, namely 1671 cumulative cases, 479 in Mimika and 254 in Jayapura Regency. (DiskominfoPapua)
