Remain Vigilant Against Infection During Major Events
The declining Covid-19 cases should be managed with caution against the risk of transmission, especially during major activities already scheduled to take place.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS — Over the last months of the year, several national events are to be held that risk drawing crowds. Testing and contact tracing should be further intensified so that the events do not become clusters of infection that lead to a surge in cases and overburden the healthcare system.
The events include the National Games (PON) in Papua, the Superbike World Championship in West Nusa Tenggara, followed by the Christmas and New Year holidays. In regions with relaxed public activity restrictions (PPKM), malls and tourist destinations have partially opened, while in-class learning has resumed with limitations.
