Press Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia during Inspection of Landslide-Affected Area, 9 April 2021 at Adonara, East Flores Regency, East Nusa Tenggara Province
Date 9 April 2021
This afternoon I am at Adonara, East Flores Regency, East Nusa Tenggara Province after inspecting Lembata Regency in the morning. In East Flores Regency alone, 71 people have died and the search goes on for five people still missing.
As with that of Lembata (Regency), the current location will be relocated to another area which will soon be determined by the Regent and the Governor. I assure you that Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing stands ready to build new houses as quickly as possible.
Finally, I am aware that a lot of people gather here. Do follow health protocols. Everyone should wear facemasks so that we can curb the COVID-19 transmission, especially in East Nusa Tenggara.
That concludes my statement.
I thank you. (RI/MUR)
