"As soon as 12 million doses of vaccine from Bio Farma are ready to be used, we will provide 5,000 doses of vaccine for the workers of the mass media companies", said Jokowi.

"I am sure there are many media people who want to be vaccinated. We will prepare the vaccines for them at the end of February or early March," said Jokowi.

State-owned pharmaceutical company PT Bio Farma will produce 12 million doses of the Covid-19 bulk vaccine from China's Sinovac, which is scheduled to be completed on February 11.


Jakarta’s Governor Dissuades Public From Traveling on Chinese New Year

Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has dissuaded the public from hitting the road during the Chinese New Year weekend, a bit over a month after Covid-19 cases surged after holidaygoers traveled on the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

“I urge the [Jakarta] public to stay at home, as the number of Covid-19 cases remain high,” he said on Tuesday, February 9.

“Traveling can bring about the transmission of Covid-19 anytime, anywhere. If we are in a car with a relative who is exposed to the coronavirus or already contracted it for five to seven hours, then we are all at risk of contracting Covid-19.”

The Gerindra party politician called on the public to stay at home during the long weekends to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission. Jakarta is currently carrying out micro-scale social activities or PPKM, along with other provinces in Java as well as Bali until February 22.
