The document is one of many reports the WHO recently released which calls attention to Coronavirus-related conditions globally.
In the WHO Indonesia Situation Report, the organization expresses its support toward the government’s approach to turning to epidemiological data before easing lockdown measures.
The WHO also provided information on non-negotiable criteria that must be met before enforcing a new normal. These include:
The report points out that the number of daily reported cases does not match the actual number of those infected with the Covid-19 virus.
This is the outcome of Indonesia’s shortage of laboratories that can conduct Covid-19 testing thus lab results can take up to a week before cases can be confirmed.
Gearing Up for the New Normal
The Indonesian government is in the midst of preparing a new normal protocol scenario while the Jakarta Governor has extended the capital city’s large-scale social distancing measures.
Until the end of June, the Jakarta Province will slowly transition into a new normal by gradually easing restrictions and businesses.
