From Pandemic to Endemic
The second wave of Covid-19 infection that reached its peak of 56,000 new daily cases in mid-July has gradually subsided over the weeks since.
The next step, now that the second wave of Covid-19 has subsided, is that we must continue to prioritize health.
The imposition of the public activity restrictions (PPKM) should serve as a stepping-stone for a road map to anticipate Covid-19 as an endemic. It turns out that the tightly supervised activity restrictions were able to reduce coronavirus transmission and thus open up opportunities, especially in reviving the economy. The improved condition is partly attributable to the government\'s attitude, which has become more open to suggestions and criticism.
