Tend to be Controlled
Over the past two weeks the East Java region has experienced a decrease in the positive confirmation case of Covid-19. The number of patients on surveillance (ODP), people on monitoring (ODP), and mortality rates are still controlled. Meanwhile, the recovery rate in East Java was monitored to continue to increase.”The capacity of referral hospitals in several regions in East Java is relatively sufficient even in some areas such as Magetan, Madiun and Ngawi, the number of beds available is still more. But conversely there are some regions such as Surabaya and Sidoarjo, the number of beds is still insufficient,” said Khofifah.
“God willing, in the next week if discipline increases, the curve in East Java can be even more sloping and even decrease and all regencies / cities in East Java can immediately enter the new normal life order,” he added.Khofifah reminded Covid zoning not to make the public careless so as to reduce the level of vigilance. If that happens, continued Khofifah, it is not impossible that a second wave of Covid-19 transmission will occur.”Stay alert, be disciplined, keep your distance, wear a mask, wash your hands with soap, and apply a clean and healthy lifestyle. Adhere to health protocols for the common good,” he said.

Three Regions in East Java Are Free of Corona Positive Patients
East Java Province has three regions with Covid-19 green zone status. The three areas reportedly only have a number of people under surveillance (ODP) and no one has been confirmed positive for corona virus exposure.The three sterile areas are Sampang Madura Regency which has 242 ODP, Sumenep Madura Regency (110 ODP), and Pasuruan City (47 ODP).The Chair of the Curative Cluster Task Force, Joni Wahyuhadi, said there were several possibilities that the area had not yet been infected with SARS-CoV-2.
One possibility is that the corona virus does not originate from regions or in Indonesia.”So, there are a number of possibilities, including good care, so that no positive people enter the area. Or if there are positive ones, they are well isolated. So, the point of the disease is from abroad,” Joni said in the Grahadi State Building in Surabaya, Wednesday, April 8, 2020, quoted .
