Elang hoped that no more health workers will die in the pandemic. He has asked the government to protect the health workers by conducting examination periodically.

“Those health workers who are directly involved in handling Covid-19 patients in health facilities such as health centers, clinics, or independent practice physicians will be given protection with periodic checks,” he added.

He also called on the public to remain disciplined in compliance with strict health protocols.

To date, Indonesia recorded more than 72,000 confirmed Covid-19 cases. It has 33,000 recovered patients and a death toll of 3,469 people.
