“This morning we asked all hospitals and health centers to be on alert following the spike in cases in the last few days,” Arief said after holding a local meeting in Tangerang, on Friday (01/21/2022).

This was carried out as a follow-up to a meeting with regional heads throughout Java and Bali that was led by Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment last night on the readiness to face the third wave of COVID-19.

Arief added that vaccinations were continuously carried out as a step to minimize the negative impact on people who were confirmed positive for COVID-19.

"We urge the public to immediately participate in vaccinations, so that all can be protected," he said.
