Budi also has issues with his ministry’s figures for vaccinations. “[The Ministry of Health] will use the General Election Commission or KPU’s statistics instead of the Ministry’s, as their use in the recent regional elections make them more accurate,” he lamented.
“I will adjust our nationwide vaccination program with the [KPU’s] statistics, as they are more up to date and are better at reflecting the situation on the ground. I have had enough of the Ministry of Health’s figures, I do not think I will ever use them again.”
President Jokowi appointed Budi to replace his predecessor Terawan Agus Putranto, after the former Army General failed to curb Covid-19 numbers or ease public anxiety about the pandemic.
