President Jokowi will also see firsthand Surabaya and the city of Banyuwangi's level of preparedness ahead of the New Normal phase. The President's working visit to East Java is his first trip outside of Jakarta since the Covid-19 pandemic struck Indonesia last March.
President Jokowi named East Java as one of three provinces to focus on due to their high coronavirus cases, along with South Sulawesi and South Kalimantan.
The province has the second-highest number of Covid-19 cases in Indonesia with 10,092, second only to DKI Jakarta with 10,123.
