Jakarta: The government will optimize industries that manufacture self-protection devices and other equipment for handling covid-19, Doni Monardo, head of the Task Force for the Acceleration of COVID-19 Handling, stated here on Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
 
"We have spoken to Industry Minister Agus Gumiwang that all industries that produce equipment to support the handling of covid-19 will be optimized," Monardo remarked after a meeting with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and all governors held to discuss measures to handle the covid-19 pandemic.
 
According to him, this is applicable to not only the textile industry to produce self-protection devices but also to manufacturers of masks, hand sanitizers, and other equipment.

Hence, the local industries can meet the local demand and not depend on foreign assistance. They can work on partnership with producers of components of the equipment in regions.
 
If the production can be maximized, Indonesia can, in future, supply self-protection gear to other countries in need, as the textile industry is mostly centered in South and Southeast Asia.
 
As of Tuesday, March 24, 2020, Indonesia had 68 confirmed cases of covid-19, with the death toll reaching 49, while the number of recoveries reaching 40.
