28 December 2022 01:48

The decision to end Covid-19 restrictions is on hold. President Joko Widodo said the decision will be made once the study on the level of public immunity against the virus or zero surveys are finished.

This announcement by the president was made after he inaugurated Manggarai Station on Monday (26/12/2022). President Jokowi also said he will make the official announcement on whether or not restrictions will be lifted once the results of the zero survey or study regarding the public's immunity level have been completed.

If the results are above 90% of the public's immunity to the virus, then an increase of covid cases in other countries would not affect Indonesia and its citizens, therefore a decision to lift restrictions can be made.
