The Covid-19 pandemic has not only had a severe impact on health and the economy, but has also contributed in part to an increase in poverty. The government should continue to work extra hard to cope with the pandemic’s impacts.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The government\'s measures to deal with the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on public health and the economy might not be the best compared to other countries, but it is by no means the worst. This means that the efforts the government has taken to deal with the pandemic so far can be considered relatively good.
