An epidemiologist proclaimed that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is not over even as Covid-19 cases in Indonesia hit closer to 550,000. KOMPAS.com/GARRY LOTULUNGAn epidemiologist proclaimed that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is not over even as Covid-19 cases in Indonesia hit closer to 550,000.

Dicky stressed that acting optimistically is insufficient if Indonesia seeks to take control of the situation surrounding the novel virus.

As such, he suggests that the government make use of the Covid-19 Intra-Action Review shared by the Indonesian Health Minister with the WHO to refine the national Covid-19 mitigation strategy.

“Among the priority action should be implementing the command system and cross-sector coordination between the regions and central areas.”

“There must also be a commitment to improving tracing, testing, and treatment (3T) efforts. Without proper 3T, then Covid-19 vaccinations will be ineffective.”

Nine months after the first Covid-19 cases in Indonesia were reported on March 2, the country has yet to show signs of controlling the virus transmission.

Today, the Ministry of Health recorded 5,533 new Covid-19 cases in the archipelago after 5,092 confirmed cases were reported yesterday.

The nationwide caseload now stands at 549,508 with 17,199 people dead due to the virus and 458,880 individuals who have recovered.
