Covid-19’s chain reaction
Indonesia has taken a hit from the coronavirus pandemic not only through its impact on the national economy. Indonesia’s Finance Minister said on June 27 that the pandemic has caused a domino effect on politics, the economy, social, and financial sectors.
The spread of the Covid-19 virus in Indonesia has been especially hard in the country’s most populous island as well as its economic powerhouse, Java.
The Java island contributes the biggest to Indonesia’s gross domestic product with DKI Jakarta taking the top spot.
