Patient went to the shaman in Sukamakmur to undergo alternative medicine.
A positive patient of Covid-19 reportedly ran away from the puskesmas and chose alternative medicine in Sukamakmur, Bogor Regency, West Java.

So, all people around the shaman’s practice location must undergo a test.”Later the family and close contacts in Sukamakmur will take their swabs,” said the Covid-19 Task Force Handler for Bogor Regency, Syarifah Sofiah, quoted from radarbogor.id.
