“A day to be grateful for. In the last 24 hours there have been 0 requests for Covid-19 funeral services in DKI Jakarta,” Anies wrote in the caption.
In that post, Anies also hoped that this positive trend would continue to be maintained and asked residents to continue to apply health protocols. Berita Politik
Implicitly, he also doesn’t want Jakarta to face another spike in cases like last July, where the death toll in the capital reached more than 200 cases.
“Let’s take care of each other. Don’t take off the mask first,” said Anies.
Through a written statement, Anies also reminded residents to vaccinate against Covid-19. However, he also reminded that having a vaccine is not an excuse to ignore health protocols.
“Even though you have been vaccinated, you still maintain strict health protocols everywhere. At the office, at school, in public places, in the neighborhood around the house, etc.,” said Anies.
Previously, epidemiologist expert from the Faculty of Public Health, University of Indonesia (FKM UI), Pandu Riono, had previously predicted that Jakarta would reach zero deaths. Berita Hari ini
He also revealed the basis for this assumption. According to him, there are a number of factors that influence this possibility.
One important factor is the vaccination coverage of the elderly. DKI Jakarta is the only province in Indonesia with vaccination coverage above 80 percent. Finance Solutions
