JAKARTA, KOMPAS.TV – Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves) Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan revealed that currently Indonesia is a country that is at level 1 of Covid-19 globally, causing economic recovery to run fast.
This, said Luhut, was due to Indonesia’s success in rapidly reducing and controlling Covid-19 cases.
This statement was made by Luhut at the event Indonesia Economic Oulook 2022 in Jakarta, Wednesday (24/11/2021).
“It should be noted that in this region, level 1 is currently only India, China, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, others are level 2 and so on,” said Luhut in a written statement.
“So our country is a big country and many countries have appreciated that Indonesia is able tomanage Covid-19 is doing well,” he continued.
However, Luhut still reminded the public not to be careless and continue to apply health protocols (prokes) strictly. Because the Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet.
“We must not be satisfied with this position, because anything can happen if we are not disciplined. So the key word here is that we must comply with government directives,” he said.
He further said that the government took a very careful approach, especially in dealing with the Christmas and New Year (Nataru) holiday period.
Learning from last year’s experience, the surge in mobility in the Nataru period resulted in an increase in cases which then caused the economic recovery to slow down.
