Suara.com – As many as 15 million doses of the covid-19 vaccine raw material originating from Sinovac, have landed safely at the Cargo Terminal at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Tangerang, Banten, Tuesday (12/1/2021).
The raw materials for the bulk of the Sinovac covid-19 vaccine were transported using aircraft belonging to Garuda Indonesia.

Irfan appeared to enter the pilot’s room, where he had a brief discussion with the pilot on duty.
Irfan asked about their journey from China to Indonesia.
“It was safe (the trip),” asked Irfan. Receiving this question, the pilot immediately answered, “Alhamdulillah it is safe, sir, just a little delay of 15 minutes.”
Irfan also briefly explained to the pilot regarding the arrival of this third batch of vaccines.
He said there were as many as 15 million doses of vaccine raw materials carried by the Garuda plane on the flight.
“This is 15 million, so yesterday (waves 1 and 2) were 1.2 million doses and 1.8 million doses, so there are 3 million doses and they have been divided,” explained Irfan.
“But these 15 million are still in shape bulk (raw material) so it needs to be processed for 2 weeks, “he added.
In the conversation, Irfan joked a little to the pilots, he said that if the vaccine is carried other than using the Garuda airline, it is haraam.
“Later in February there will be around 12 million bulk, but cave I have told Bio Farma and the Minister of Health, that the one who carries the vaccine is not Garuda haram, but if the one carrying Garuda is halal, “said Irfan.
Not only that, Irfan also joked at the Minister of Religion Gus Yaqut, who was also on board with the Chairman of the BNPB Doni Munardo, that if the Covid-19 vaccine was not carried by a Garuda Indonesia plane then it would be haram.
“So I said that if the Covid-19 vaccine was not carried by Garuda Indonesia, then the vaccine is haram,” said Irfan with a laugh.
