“This decision was taken by the government taking into account that the daily confirmation rate for COVID-19 cases is close to zero. The results of a sero survey show that 99 percent of the Indonesian people already have COVID-19 antibodies,” said Jokowi.
“WHO has also revoked the status of a public health emergency of international concern,” Jokowi continued.
To note, the first case of COVID-19 in Indonesia was discovered in March 2020. Since then, the government has made various efforts to prevent the impact of the spread of the virus.
One of the efforts made by the government is to implement large-scale social restrictions (PSBB). After that, the government determined the implementation of restrictions on community activities (PPKM).
The PPKM policy has been revoked since the end of 2022. The government is also starting to end the mandatory mask policy in public places, including public transportation.
