President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo recently urged the public to follow strict health protocols during the implementation of Large Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB), despite the slowdown in covid-19 cases
However, President Jokowi also said that the number of cases could still go up and down.
According to the President, Indonesia was fortunate for choosing PSBB, instead of a total lockdown or regional quarantine. He added that the PSBB allows public activities with limitation in the number of people attending, although the public should still maintain their distance. He asserted that PSBB requires the public to heighten their awareness in limiting themselves from large social gatherings.
