President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo at a limited meeting on Thursday (4/6) ordered to increase target of specimen testing and carry out massive tracking in a more aggressive manner.

The President also expressed gratitude that the specimen testing has exceeded the initial target of 10,000 tests per day.

“The next target is 20,000 tests per day. We should prepare ourselves to meet the target,” he said.

Meanwhile, regarding massive tracking, the President called for adopting modern telecommunications technology systems, while starting to leave conventional ways, suchas in New Zealand which use a digital diary, or in South Korea which developed a mobile GPS for COVID-19 data so that the tracking system can be better monitored.
