Press Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia After an Inspection on the Readiness in the Implementation of the New Normal Standard Procedures in Commerce Facilities, Tuesday, 26 May 2020 at the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle MRT station, Central Jakarta, Jakarta
Date 28 Mei 2020
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
This morning, I came to the MRT Station to ensure that today the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI) and the National Police (Polri) have deployed personnel in the crowd areas in order to exercise more discipline to the public to follow health protocol in accordance with the Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB).
It will be implemented in 4 provinces and 25 regencies and cities starting from today, so we want to more maintain the strong discipline of the public. We hope that TNI and Polri will massively participate in disciplining the public, making them aware, reminding them, we hope that the curve of the COVID-19 transmission will decline dramatically. We notice that the R0 of several provinces is already below 1, and we hope that it will continue to decrease with the presence or deployment of personnel from TNI and Polri on the field.
I think this is all I can say on this good occasion.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Further information will be delivered by the TNI Commander and National Police Chief after Jakarta Governor. Thank you.
