KAI Adds 6 Stations To Provide GeNose Rapid Test Equipment


Suara.com – PT Kereta Api Indonesia or KAI will add 6 stations that provide Covid-19 inspection services with GeNose on Monday (15/2/2021) tomorrow. Previously, the examination of prospective passengers using GeNose was only available at Pasar Senen Station and Yogyakarta Station.

The six stations are Gambir Station, Solo Balapan, Bandung, Cirebon, Semarang Tawang, and Surabaya Pasar Turi. The cost to get this service is cheap, which is only IDR 20 thousand.

“The addition of stations that serve the GeNose C19 inspection is a form of improving the services we provide to customers in order to fulfill train travel requirements,” said VP of Public Relations KAI, Joni Martinus in a press statement in Jakarta on Sunday (14/2).

The GeNose C19 inspection service is the result of a BUMN synergy between KAI and Rajawali Nusantara Indonesia through its subsidiary Rajawali Nusindo, and Gadjah Mada University. The number of stations serving the GeNose C19 inspection will continue to be increased gradually.

“Since opening on February 3, 2021 to February 12, 2021, KAI has served 21,530 GeNose C19 participants at the station,” said Joni.

In accordance with the Ministry of Transportation’s SE No 20 of 2021, Long Distance Train customers are required to show a negative certificate GeNose C19 or Rapid Test Antigen or RT-PCR whose samples are taken within a maximum period of 3×24 hours before departure time. Especially for departures during long holidays or religious holidays, the sample is taken within a maximum period of 1×24 hours before departure time.

Requirements To be able to check GeNose C19 at the station are that prospective passengers must have a long-distance train ticket or booking code that has been paid off. For 30 minutes before carrying out the examination, prospective passengers are prohibited from smoking, eating and drinking (except water) to increase the accuracy of the results of the GeNose C19 examination.

At the time of execution, prospective passengers are asked to blow the bag to the brim and follow directions from the officer or instructions at the inspection location.

KAI will ensure that those who can take the train are customers who are in good health and meet the requirements according to government regulations.
