Preventing a spike in COVID-19 cases, the COVID-19 Task Force Prepares a Strategy for the Nataru Holiday

Suara.com – The Christmas and New Year holiday periods are predicted to increase the number of COVID-19 cases in Indonesia.

In order to prevent this from happening, the COVID-19 Task Force said that the regulation of community activities during the Christmas and New Year 2022 period will adjust case data and conditions in the field.

“There will be adjustments to the regulation of community activities and mobility that are regulated according to case data and real conditions in the field,” said Spokesperson for the COVID-19 Handling Task Force, Prof. Wiku Adisasmito, quoted from ANTARA.

Currently, he said the government was discussing the details of the COVID-19 control policy during the Christmas and New Year 2022 period.

In principle, he added, the government will continue to support community activities, as long as they are carried out in a controlled manner.

Wiku said that over the past week, 20.37 percent of districts/cities, 21.9 percent of sub-districts, and 22.96 percent of villages or sub-districts nationally reported compliance with wearing masks of less than 75 percent of the total monitored community.

Regarding compliance with social distancing in the past week, there were 23.71 percent of districts/cities, 23.78 percent of sub-districts, and 21.91 percent of villages or sub-districts nationally with compliance of less than 75 percent of the total monitored community.

“Both in the Java-Bali and non-Java-Bali areas, the level of compliance per regency/city is already quite high, although there is still diversity in each island,” he said.

He hopes that the local government together with the established posts will continue to improve recording and reporting activities in various public facilities.
