December 22, 2020, 03.12 AM – As Indonesia enters deeper into its deadly battle with the Covid-19 virus, the Jakarta Provincial Government has extended its transitory PSBB until next year.

Indonesia’s capital city has re-extended its large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) until Jan. 3, 2021 as its Governor, Anies Baswedan anticipates a surge in fresh infections after the year-end holiday.

In keeping with news surrounding Covid-19 in Indonesia, the Spokesperson for Covid-19 Vaccination for the Indonesian Food and Drug Administration, Lucia Rizka Andalusia denied reports that China’s Sinovac coronavirus vaccine triggers the weakest immunity response.

The “Agent of Change 2020” achievement from the Indonesian Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform awarded several ministers including the Indonesian Finance Minister, Sri Mulyani, and the Minister of Education and Culture, Nadiem Makarim.

Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan explained that the move to once again extend the city’s PSBB is to anticipate a potential surge in fresh Covid-19 cases following the year-end holiday.
