“The Food and Drug Agency [BPOM] will run tests on AstraZeneca batch number CTMAV547, which will take one or two weeks. The move is part of efforts to ensure that the vaccine is safe for use,” said Ministry of Health spokesperson Siti Nadia Tarmizi on Sunday.

“The National Commission for Post Immunization Incidents or KIPI’s report also recommended the BPOM test, though data on the batch has yet to confirm the recommendation.”

Nadia added that KIPI has yet to find evidence of people in Indonesia who died as a result of a Covid-19 vaccination. “In a number of similar incidents, the deceased died from other factors unrelated to the vaccine.”

She assured that “the move will not affect other AstraZeneca batches aside from CTMAV547. The other batches are perfectly safe for use, so the public do not need to question their quality.”

Nadia asserted that “the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine will continue because they are shown to have substantial benefits.”

The 448,480 doses that make up the CTMAV547 Covid-19 batch is part of more than the 3,85 million doses shipped to Indonesia from the Covax Facility/World Health Organization [WHO] on April 26, 2021.

The AstraZeneca vaccine made headlines across Indonesia, after 22 year-old Jakarta resident Trio Fauqi Virdaus died on Thursday, May 6, less than 24 hours after he received the vaccine at Jakarta’s Gelora Bung Karno stadium.


Police in Central Java, Indonesia Question Teenager At Helm of Capsized Boat

The number of deaths from the capsizing of a boat on Kedung Ombo reservoir in Boyolali regency, Central Java has increased to seven people after SAR teams from the military, police and National Search and Rescue Agency [Basarnas] found another body Sunday.

Boyolali Police Precinct chief Police Grand Commissioner Attendant Morry Ermond said the deceased was identified as a 12-year old girl named Desti Parmaswati. “The finding [of Desti’s body] means that two people remained missing and unaccounted for,” he said.

“SAR teams have deployed 50 divers to search for the missing in depths of 15 to 30 meters. They are also using water drones to find the missing.”

Morry added that investigators have also questioned Galih or GH, the skipper of the pleasure boat., who was only 13 years old.

“GH confirmed accounts that the boat capsized before it can reach its destination of a floating restaurant, when a passenger made their way to the bow of the ship to take a selfie. The boat tilted to the right and capsized,” he asserted.
