Without Tactical Steps, Regions on the Brink of Crisis
The spike in Covid-19 cases in a number of regions following Idul Fitri is an urgent matter that needs to be handled tactically and decisively. Enforcement of large-scale social restrictions could be one option.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The surge in Covid-19 cases in a number of regions has caused in-patient medical treatment and isolation rooms to fill up. Tactical steps are needed to prevent conditions from getting worse in those regions.
Tactical steps are increasingly needed because community mobility has the potential to increase again during the school holidays starting from the middle of this month until mid-July and Idul Adha on 20 July. This increased mobility has the potential to enlarge the number of Covid-19 cases.
