Adaro Energy has allocated ambulances assistance for DKI Jakarta and Adaro Indonesia (AI) areas in South and Central Kalimantan, including the AMC area in Murung Raya.
The AMC External Relation Departement Head Ignatius Iryanto handed over the ambulance to Head of the Murung Raya Health Agency dr. Suria Siri and representatives of Mura's COVID-19 Task Force at the AMC site, Muara Tuhup.
“The allocation from AE to Murung Raya was sought because most of the patients are in remote areas, while the referral hospital is located far away," Ignatius explained.
The procurement of the ambulance is expected to contribute more to the handling of COVID-19 in Murung Raya considering the number of positive patients in the district is increasing.
Ignatius said, the assistance is expected to boost the acceleration of COVID-19 handling and positive patients would soon recover.

Separately, Murung Raya Regent Perdie M. Yoseph expressed his appreciation and gratitude to AMC for providing support to the task force.
“This is the umpteenth time the assistance has been provided by AMC and we can see today an ambulance has been provided," Perdie said.
Certainly in the fight against the pandemic requires mutual cooperation of all parties, not only the government but also assisted by investors and private parties, so the breaking of the chain of the spread of the virus really occurs, he added.
