TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Presidential Staff Office (KSP) has reminded people to remain vigilant despite the current COVID-19 Situation under control, as there was still a risk of a third wave lurking, especially during the holidays at the end of the year.
“The government’s intention is not to scare (you) but to increase vigilance (instead). The government is investigating existing cases from other countries that were affected first and we do not want conditions (such) to recur in Indonesia, ”KSP Senior Adviser Abraham Wirotomo said in a statement here on Saturday.
He also encouraged attendees at the Presidential Staff Office Lists event in Salatiga, Central Java, to urge government-community collaboration to prevent the third wave. The participants included 68 representatives from community, religious and youth organizations from the city of Salatiga.
“The conditions before Christmas and New Year are very dynamic. There are many changes that are causing the government to adjust its policies. We are here to hear what the fellowship is saying. As the president said, people’s views need to be heard because Indonesia is impossible “to fight the pandemic successfully without the support of the community,” he said.
