JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The Spokesperson for the National Covid-19 Task Force, Achmad Yurianto, cautions the Indonesian public to keep their toddlers away from crowded areas such as shopping centers.
Adhering to the measure would prevent toddlers from across Indonesia from contracting the Covid-19 virus.
“There is no need to invite our toddlers to visit shopping centers,” Achmad reiterated during a press conference in Jakarta on June 20.

Achmad voiced the same message for Indonesia’s senior citizens who have the highest risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus.
Those with a pre-existing condition are also one of the most vulnerable groups amid the deadly spread of the Covid-19 virus.
The new normal transition has led to the reopening of public activity with the aim of returning Indonesia’s productivity level.

The goal is not, however, to instill euphoria among the society that would then lead to citizens ignoring health protocols.
