Expanding Covid-19 Vaccination for Children
The Covid-19 vaccination program for children aged 6-11 years has commenced in areas with high vaccination rates, which will protect children and those around them from the infectious disease.
Omicron Variant Transmission Expanding
At least 19 countries have reported the Omicron variant, which has multiple mutations in the spike protein. Meanwhile, genomic surveillance shows that the new Covid-19 variant has not been detected in Indonesia.
Get Ready to Stop Omicron
We appreciate the government's quick response to ban travellers from South Africa and surrounding countries, as well as warning the public to comply with the implementation of community activity restrictions (PPKM).
Govt Must Enforce Ban on Year-end Leave
The government is prohibiting state civil servants (ASN) from taking collective leave during the Christmas 2021 and New Year 2022 holidays, starting on 20 Dec.
World Races Against Omicron Variant
A new strain of the coronavirus has been detected in several countries. The WHO has called on all countries to increase surveillance and genome sequencing to better understand the newly circulating variant.
Considering PPKM Level 3
To prevent an explosion of Covid-19 transmissions during the Christmas and New Year holidays, the government will impose level 3 community activity restrictions (PPKM) nationwide. How do we respond to this?
Use Data in Setting PPKM Level
The public health campaign on plans to impose social activity restrictions (PPKM) level 3 ahead of Christmas and New Year must be intensive. To be accepted by the public, the policy needs to be based on data.
Merah Putih Vaccine set for Mass Production in 2022
Development progress of the Merah Putih vaccine has been encouraging. Amid the acceleration of vaccination, coordination should be intensified so we do not end up with more unused expired vaccines.
Beware of Third Wave of Pandemic
Increasing vigilance against a potential third wave is urgent. Nonetheless, promoting tourism consistently in conjunction with enforcing tight discipline in observing the health protocols is also necessary.
Time to Accelerate Vaccination
The number of daily cases and Covid-19 deaths has declined significantly of late, but special attention should be given to the infection management indicator, namely vaccination.
