“[The authorities] have two main tasks. First, how do we closely monitor the arrival of foreigners and Indonesian citizens from abroad,” said Listyo during his visit to Soekarno-Hatta Airport on Wednesday, May 12.

“There is a need to ask inbound passengers to undergo another coronavirus PCR test upon arrival, even though they have already presented a negative coronavirus PCR test from the country of origin,” he maintained.

“If their body temperatures rise above normal after temperature checks, the passenger must take a Covid-19 antigen test.”

The second main task, Listyo said, relevant officers must impose strict health protocols on inbound and outbound passengers. “In entry points such as at the airport, we must implement stricter health protocols at entry points such as the airport,” he said

“If [the airport sub precinct police] are short-handed, they can ask the Jakarta Metropolitan Police or the Police Headquarters to provide additional personnel.”

He also said that the airport operator must anticipate the influx of passengers after the Eid al-Fitr celebrations. “I hope the airport will implement stricter control policies as this is a connecting gate to other areas," he said.

As of May 11, Indonesia reported a total of 1.7 million confirmed cases since the first two cases were found in March 2020 and 47,465 deaths, while 1.5 million patients have recovered.

The Indonesian government have banned chartered flights from overseas for the duration of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which is until May 17.


Indonesia Sends Aid to India in the Form of Oxygen Tanks

Indonesia has sent 200 oxygen concentrators to India to help the country deal with its Covid-19 outbreak. The aid comes as the World Health Organization [WHO] reported that the country has 23,340,938 confirmed cases as of May 12.

Indonesian Minister of Foreign Affairs Retno Marsudi sent off the aid at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten on Wednesday, May 12.

“[The oxygen concentrators] are a form of humanitarian aid that reflects Indonesia’s solidarity with India,” she said.

“We sent the oxygen concentrators, two days after the Ministry of Industry and a number of business associations sent 1400 cylindrical oxygen tubes of about 40 liters to India. We hope that the aid will help India get its Covid-19 pandemic under control.”
