“I would like to inform you regarding my health condition. As is known in the last few weeks, I made a working visit to several areas that experienced a fairly high spike in Covid-19 cases, such as Kudus and Bangkalan,” reads an excerpt from his written statement VOA Indonesia.

According to him, the results of the antigen swab test on Friday (18/6) showed that he was positive for Covid-19.

However, he did not specify the variant of the corona virus he suffered and did not answer the confirmation request that VOA asked via text message.

The press release issued by the Covid-19 Handling Task Force underlines Wiku’s positive attitude towards his current condition and his optimism that he will recover soon.

“As I said, I travel on business to various regions and adhere to health protocols in a disciplined manner. There is a possibility that I will be exposed while doing these activities, when my immune system decreases due to fatigue,” he said.

Furthermore, Wiku said that he had asked those who had close contact with him to do an antigen test as an effort for medical testing and tracking.

He also asked the public to strictly comply with 3M’s health protocols, namely wearing masks, washing hands and keeping a distance. He considered this very important “because anyone can contract Covid-19 and only by being disciplined in carrying out health protocols can we prevent ourselves from transmitting Covid-19.”
