COVID-19 Task Force at RT, RW, Customary Villages Levels Must Be Strengthened, President Jokowi Says
Date 18 Mei 2020
The most effective control of the spread of COVID-19 is at the levels of neighboring unit (RT), community unit (RW), and customary villages, according to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.
“Based on the reports from Governors both provinces implementing large-scale social restrictions and those that do not, it is found that the most effective way in controlling the spread of COVID-19 is at the lowest community unit,” the President said in his introduction at a limited meeting through a video conference from the Merdeka Palace, Jakarta, Monday (18/5).
To that end, the President also ordered relevant ministers and all regional heads to strengthen the Task Force at the RT, RW or customary village levels.
“It is very important (to strengthen) the Task Force at the RT, RW or customary villages,” the President said, adding that supervision of health protocols in industrial clusters should also be enhanced. (FID/EN)
