KOMPAS.com – The latest developments surrounding Covid-19 cases in Indonesia involve Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan who tested positive for the virus today.

The top officials of the Jakarta Provincial Government are now confirmed Covid-19 patients after the capital city’s Deputy Governor Ahmad Riza Patria also tested positive last weekend.

Moreover, as Covid-19 cases in Indonesia easily head towards the 450,000-mark, Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Cultural Affairs Muhadjir Effendy advised the public to be wise with their year-end holidays.

Muhadjir reminded the public that despite the official word on the Christmas and New Year holidays, the public should continue prioritizing their personal health and safety as well as their families.

The Indonesian National Police has intensified its efforts to prevent a 212 Alumni Brotherhood reunion from taking place at Jakarta’s National Monument tomorrow.

Although the radical group has stated that it will postpone this year’s event after the Jakarta Provincial Government denied the use of the venue, there is still public worry among law enforcement officials that the group’s members will still follow through.

More details on today’s Indonesia news are highlighted below:
