TRIBUNBATAM.id -  The increasing number of corona virus-positive patients in Batam, Riau Islands, has made the Batam City Government enforce strict rules at every entrance. 

Starting from a number of ports both international and domestic to the airport, where everyone who enters Batam is required to carry a health certificate or free of coronavirus which is valid for seven days. 

Head of Batam Transportation Department, Rustam Efendi said this policy was to suppress efforts to transmit new corona from the import case. 

"Every passenger who will enter Batam must attach a certificate of reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test. The results must be negative and valid for 7 days at the time of departure," Rustam said, by telephone, Friday (6/6 / 2020) night. 

Not only corona-free letters in the form of PCR information, but each passenger can also attach a certificate of rapid test results with non-reactive results.

However, for rapid tests only valid for three days at the time of departure from the port of origin.

"For areas that do not have a PCR test or rapid test can attach a symptom-free certificate such as influenza, which is issued by a hospital doctor or health center," Rustam said.

Rustam said, now it is more focused on passengers who go through domestic ports such as Dumai, Meranti, Bengkalis, Buton, Jambi, and others will enter Batam

That also applies to other Riau Islands that enter Batam, such as Karimun, Tanjungpinang, and others.

"This is done in the context of supervision to prepare a new order of life or new normal," explained Rustam.
