Hidayatullah.com—The Civil Society Coalition again asked President Jokowi’s commitment to dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. Previously, in the Plenary Cabinet Session of Health Management and Economic Recovery for Strengthening Reforms in 2021 at the State Palace, Monday (07/09/2020), President Joko Widodo had stated that the key to our economic recovery is good health.

“Today, the public health situation is clearly deteriorating and quite precarious. Nationally, the number of active cases increase per day (10/09/20) recorded the worst record, namely 3,861 cases. So that the total accumulation of active cases per afternoon will be 207,203. The confirmed death rate continues to increase (8,456). The ratio of positive cases has also increased, while health workers have fallen, “said Asfinawati in a statement received by Hidayatullah.com, Thursday (10/09/2020).

According to Asfinawati, the steps taken by DKI Jakarta to decide again on Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) need to be followed by other regions, especially the Jabodetabek area.

“DKI Jakarta’s steps should be followed by other areas that provide a buffer, such as Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and South Tangerang. In fact, strict restrictions should also be imposed in areas that are currently experiencing an increase in outbreaks and the number of victims, but the real case numbers are difficult to predict because the number of tests is far below standard, “he explained.

Furthermore, Asfinawati said that based on these data, all of Java should have imposed social restrictions to control the rate of transmission. The WHO report on September 9, 2020 shows, apart from DKI Jakarta, only West Sumatra and Yogyakarta have met the minimum test capacity of 1/1000 / week.

Therefore, Asfinawati said, we ask President Jokowi once again not to break his promise to prioritize the health of citizens as the key to the nation’s economic recovery. Among other things, this was realized by asking all ministers and the Covid-19 Handling Task Force team to concretely make and implement policies for handling Covid-19 by prioritizing health protection before accelerating economic activities such as the pre-pandemic period.

In addition, his party also said that the Decree of the Minister of Health regarding the Jakarta PSBB has never been revoked. “Therefore, public officials’ statements that can be seen as policies and seek to fight against the implementation of PSBB can be included in article 93 of Law 6/2018 concerning Health Quarantine if the policy results in a public health emergency,” he said.

There are various institutions that are members of the Civil Society Coalition, including Indonesia Corruption Watch, the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (WALHI), the Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation (YLBHI), Disaster and Crisis Journalists (JBK), the Coalition for Citizens to Report COVID-19, the Commission for People Missing and Victims of Violence (KontraS) etc. * Azim Arrasyid
