He added that so far, 90 percent of positive confirmed patients have been isolated in shelters. The rest is because there are positive patients who care for the elderly. Some also have babies.
“There are those who take care of the elderly. Caring for a husband whose husband has a stroke, there are specifications, we still think if it is transferred, what will the situation be,” he added. Because of this, it is still a consideration to transfer the isotherm.
