Transportation Ministry says rapid and swab tests still required for travel


Welp, it seems like COVID-19 testing remains a necessity for traveling in Indonesia, using the most recent announcement from the Transportation Ministry contradicting a previous Health Ministry decree that battled the necessity in favour of thermal scanning.Transportation Ministry's spokesperson Adita Irawati stated on Tuesday that present travel requirements still comply with a circular issued by Indonesia's COVID-19 Task Force earlier this season, which claims travelers should carry a health record  that reveals their non-reactive outcome from a quick evaluation, or a negative checker test outcome, which can be valid for 14 days.According to the decree, both domestic and international travelers are rather required to experience thermal screening and possibly further health assessments if necessary on arrival and departure at a port of entry.  

Anyone demonstrating symptoms of pneumonia or fever will be subject to additional medical investigation and quarantine if they test positive for coronavirus disease. Back in mid-July,'' Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto issued a ministerial decree about guidelines for COVID-19 control and prevention, with among those factors saying that quick tests were no more suggested to diagnose those that are infected with COVID-19.According to this law, in terms of restricted PCR test capability, quick tests can only be conducted to monitor a particular population and exceptional situations -- like the coming of Indonesian researchers in the federal land border crossing articles, in addition to for strengthening contact tracing in areas like prisons, nursing homes, rehab houses, and among vulnerable groups.

Meanwhile, the WHO has advocated rapid evaluations for epidemiological or other study functions.Flight conditions in Indonesia haven't been constant throughout the ordeal, and they can differ by area.Until mid-July, travelers flying in or outside of Jakarta needed to present a SIKM entry/exit license prior to the app had been scrapped, while Soekarno-Hatta airport officer stated that just PCR test results are necessary for flying after that month.Health experts have warned that bogus negative outcomes from accelerated evaluations pose a threat to travelers.  While national travel is permitted in Indonesia, health experts have claimed that the safest choice at the moment would be to hold off on travel and avoid crowded areas such as airports.
