To Ensure Recovery is not in Vain
The government needs to invite local and traditional leaders to remind the people the importance of vaccinations and discipline with health protocols. All parties must do their part so that recovery is not in vain.
People Need Easier Access to Booster Jabs
According to data from the Health Ministry, a booster, or a third dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, has been given to only 18.1 million people, or 8.72 percent of the target.
Beware of Omicron “Trojan Horse” in Households
Many cases of Covid-19 are spread through close contact with people with mild symptoms or none at all, so public vigilance must be maintained.
Overcoming Omicron and Future Variants
We all have the same hope: that Covid-19, which has infected 400 million people and claimed 5.8 million lives on planet Earth, will become an ordinary, mild disease, or even disappear from the face of the Earth.
Strengthening Protection for Healthcare Personnel
The provision of temporary accommodation to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission among health workers was important. Most of the health workers who tested positive for Covid-19 were infected outside their hospitals
Regions at Greater Risk, Accelerate Vaccinations
Areas outside Java could be more at risk with the spread of the Omicron variant, mainly due to limited vaccinations and health facilities. The government was asked to speed up vaccination.

The government has again raised the public activity restrictions to level 3 in Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi, Greater Bandung, Yogyakarta, and Bali.
Omicron Subvariant BA.2 More Infectious
Omicron accounted for more than 93 percent of all specimens of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, in the past month. This variant has a few subvariants, namely BA.1, BA.1.1, BA.2 and BA.3.
1.12 Million Vaccines Doses Have Expired
The fact that many vaccines had expired is ironic, as it comes at a time when many people are still unvaccinated. Vaccination is necessary to increase immunity.
