Control, the Key to Living with Covid-19
Since mid-July, whenever Indonesia reported spikes in Covid-19 cases, Kompas noted down certain measurements to create an index that reflected the direction and speed of Covid-19 control at the provincial level.
The Covid-19 pandemic is unlikely to end soon. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, will continue to circulate for years to come. Thus, control efforts must persist.
Learning how to control a highly contagious virus is the key to living with it. This way, transmission can be suppressed and those infected will not risk dying from the disease.
