    Bro Izrul
    That's a lot of scale lost. Something I googled in some other thread, hope it's helpfull:

    For the koi with lost scales, my recommendation is for you to keep the koi in quarantine with 0.3% salt and yellow powder. This should maintain its health by controlling osmosis. Yellow powder should prevent bacteria attack on its lost scales area. Antibiotic may be necessary depending on condition of the koi. Allow it to heal somewhat before introducing it to your pond again."

    Good luck bro

    Would also be good to check your water parameters to find the root cause.
