Editor’s note: This article is part of a public campaign by the COVID-19 task force (Satgas COVID-19) to raise people’s awareness about the pandemic. Data released by the Joint Regional Defense Command (Kogabwilhan) I, which is in charge of the facility during the pandemic showed that those people comprised patients with mild to moderate symptoms, who are staying in towers 6 and 7 as well as asymptomatic patients isolated in towers 4 and 5.The self-isolation facilities are provided by the government for those who are unable to quarantine at home because they live in houses that are too small or which are shared by many family members or are in close proximity to other houses.Separately, Jakarta Health Agency public health unit head Fify Mulyani said that two more hotels were being prepared to accommodate asymptomatic COVID-19 patients. They are Max One Sabang, Central Jakarta, and Grand Asia Hotel, North Jakarta.Read also: In virus-stricken Indonesia, many can’t afford to self-quarantine at home The number of asymptomatic COVID-19 patients undergoing self-isolation at three hotels in Jakarta has reached 319 patients, around 45 percent of the total capacity of 706 beds.Data from the national COVID-19 task force show that as of Thursday night, U Stay Hotel in Mangga Besar, West Jakarta, accommodated 114 patients, 63 percent of its total capacity of 180 patients. Meanwhile Ibis Style Hotel in Mangga Dua in Central Jakarta accommodated 77 patients, 22 percent of 336 beds and Ibis Hotel Senen also in Central Jakarta accommodated 128 patients, 67 percent of its total 190-bed capacity.Meanwhile, 2,951 COVID-19 patients are staying at the former athletes village in Kemayoran – now an emergency hospital for COVID-19 patients in Central Jakarta. Topics : Fify however did not elaborate on the total capacity of the two additional hotels. “Today they will start to receive patients,” she said in a text message.Previously, Fify explained that patients could not choose the place for the free self-isolation facilities provided by the government.“It depends of recommendations from their community health center [Puskesmas],” she said as quoted by kompas.com.Meanwhile the task force also recorded 88 patients staying at Kyriad Hotel in Tangerang, Banten. The hotel has a total capacity of 165 beds.Furthermore, Jakarta’s plan to put stickers on the houses of residents currently self-isolating has met with a mixed reaction.Some think it is it is essential to use the stickers to inform other people about the health status of residents that live in the house, but others have warned about the stigmatization of asymptomatic COVID-19 patients self-isolating in their homes.Jakarta Ombudsman head Teguh Nugroho suggested the government increase the role of neighborhood units (RT) and community units (RW) to help monitor residents self-isolating at home, instead of marking their houses.

Starting today, the University of Wisconsin women’s tennis team will travel to East Lansing, Mich., to compete in the ITA Midwest Regional Championship. This tournament will feature some of the region’s best players, all of whom will be vying for a chance to go to the ITA National Championship. Players will be able to participate in the singles or the doubles competition, with several Badgers participating in both.UW sophomore Alaina Trgovich will be one of the Badgers competing in both singles and doubles this weekend.“I like playing singles, but I enjoy playing doubles as well,” Trgovich said. “I think it’s more fun.”Her teammate, freshman Angela Chupa, expects Trgovich to continue her success this weekend. Chupa and Trgovich also expect big things out of Liz Carpenter.“Liz is a senior; she has experience and heart, and she wants her last year to be her best,” Trgovich said.Chupa also hopes to continue her recent success this weekend. After winning her flight in Evanston last week, she now sets her sights on succeeding in the singles tournament in East Lansing. She will have a tougher road than most, however, as she will be playing in the single elimination qualifier to earn her spot in the final field.Trgovich and Chupa have been working along with their teammates to improve their conditioning in preparation for the tournament — as well as the rest of the season.Individually, the players have all been working to eliminate weaknesses in their game. Chupa has put emphasis on “staying aggressive, good shot selection and eliminating mental errors.”Trgovich, on the other hand, has been more focused on her forehand and has been working on her doubles game as well.After putting in hard work off the court, the Badgers believe they belong among the best.“If we can stay focused, we can compete with anyone,” Trgovich said. “There’s not a huge difference between the best player and the worst player out there. It just comes down to how bad you want it.”Wisconsin also hopes to use the ITA Regional to gain some momentum moving into the team play portion of the schedule.“Overall, it’s experience that matters,” Trgovich said. “Matches are the key to improvement … even for the seniors.”Chupa echoed the belief of her teammate.“You’re put in different situations, and you learn how to react to them,” she said.Though the Badgers want to win now, they also know that gathering experience is an integral part on the path to victory.Trgovich and the rest of the Badgers are eager to go head-to-head against some of the region’s best competition as they prepare for the spring season.“[I’m] excited to see what we’ve got,” Trgovich said.
Bayern Munich overcame a 2-0 deficit to book a spot in the Champions League quarterfinals with a 4-2 defeat of Juventus in extra time at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.The fightback win in Germany followed the their 2-2 draw in Turin two weeks prior, and handed the Bundesliga leaders 6-4 passage on aggregate.Juventus, who were without regulars Paulo Dybala, Claudio Marchisio and Giorgio Chiellini didn’t waste time finding their opener in Germany. And it was star midfielder Pogba who put them ahead just five minutes in.A misplay between Bayern’s David Alaba and Manuel Neuer near the edge of the box allowed Stephan Lichsteiner to slip between them and force a quick Neuer save. But the ensuing rebound fell directly to the Frenchman, who slid his shot into an empty net from 18 yards out.Juve looked to have doubled their advantage in the 22nd minute when a poor Neuer goal kick clearance hit Sami Khedira and found Alvaro Morata with only Neuer to beat. But his chip over the German would not stand as he was adjudged to have been offside.However Juan Cuadrado had Massimiliano Allegri’s men up 2-0 just six minutes later with the help of a remarkable 70-yard solo run from Alvaro Morata, who beat a number of Bayern defenders before laying off for the Colombian, who calmly beat Neuer from 10 yards after taking a pair of clever touches to elude a defender. Bayern had their best chance of the half minutes before the whistle, but Thomas Muller’s left-footed shot was well-saved by a sprawling Gianluigi Buffon before the Juventus defence cleared the danger.And Juve nearly went three goals up a minute later. Pogba found space down the left before sliding a cross into an onrushing Cuadrado’s path. But the winger’s first-time blast from four yards out was saved by a hustling Neuer, who deflected the shot off the Juve man and back into play.After the break, Morata continued to terrorize the Bayern defence with successive runs down left-hand side only to fire straight at Neuer in the 56th minute, and over the bar, after another fine solo run, a minute later.Bayern’s possession game took control soon after and the Bavarians were rewarded for their sustained pressure with a lifeline in the 73rd. Douglas Costa, who was lively throughout, curled a perfect cross onto the head of Robert Lewandowski, who steered in the in-swinger from four yards away.Bayern threatened again moments later, but a mass of Juve defenders in front of goal blocked Costa’s shot from the top of the box. Muller then completed the comeback, sending the Allianz into raptures in second-half stoppage time after the German international rose and nodded a Kingsley Coman cross powerfully past Buffon and into the far corner, setting the stage extra time.The Italians scratched out the first chance of the first extra period, but Lichsteiner’s curled shot from a Mario Madzukic layoff was well-anticipated by a diving Neuer.However it was substitute Thiago scored the clinching goal for the hosts. A poor Patrice Evra clearance found the Spain international at the top of the box, where a one-two with Muller opened a path for the former Barca man to slot low and hard into Buffon’s far corner.Ex-Juventus man Coman then finished off his former club just a minute a later, finishing off a one-man counter-attack with a curled left-footed shoot inside the far post, and helping Bayern reach the quarterfinals for the 15th time on the trot. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
