Premature Plan in Galang Island
The initial policies of the central government were deemed ill-suited. One of them is the hospital on Galang Island, whose planning is considered premature. Coordination between central and local governments in handling the pandemic is not very good.
FOUR officers passed by at the post gate 2 of the Special Hospital for Covid-19 Infection on Galang Island, Batam, Riau Islands, on Wednesday, March 10. Sometime, the officers, two of whom were dressed in Indonesian Military (TNI) uniforms, chatted with each other. No ambulance or bus was seen carrying Covid-19 patients in and out of the hospital. The ones that often go back and forth to the health facilities were motorbikes.
