“After 21 days of quarantine (4 days in normal hotel for self isolation and 17 days in covid hotel), I finally got a negative PCR test. In short, for those who caught the covid upon arrival and thundered in Jakarta in quarantine at the Hariston Hotel: listerine, vodka, chlorhexidine and any other crap that you would be advised to rinse the nasopharynx did not work in my case, the test results did not change. And, in fact, I got a negative test only when I didn’t wash it with anything. Calls to the consuls, hysterics and rudeness to the staff (not only the Russians have tried) – they do not work, the consuls are not allowed into the hotel, and as a result, a military man may come to you and ask you unfriendly abuse. You are not deceived by the staff and there is no conspiracy against you, you just have a fucking covid according to the testing system in Indonesia, and the fact that you are in quarantine is a government order and no one will help you. You will pay Rs 1,100,000 a day and for each individual PCR test and each test you will have to stick a stick in your nose as deep as possible, but it does not hurt. Delivery works here, you can live, they let you walk for two hours every day in the morning. The first test will be in six days and not earlier, as much as you would like it. And subsequent tests will be every three days. But, you can refuse and reschedule the test, or ask to do it early. To get out, you need to get a CT value of 35 or higher, your CT value will be indicated on the test, it will increase as you recover. Drink vitamins, eat fruit, do exercises, walk during walking hours and try to recover as best you can, do not panic and communicate with people. Hotel is full of people from different countries, including local ones.”
