President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

This morning, I invited the Army Chief of Staff (KSAD), Air Force Chief of Staff (KSAU), and Navy Chief of Staff (KSAL) to go jogging because it is important for us to boost our body endurance in order to stay healthy. And this morning, the four of us went jogging together. And I also expressed my gratitude to the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI) for its great assistance in disciplining the public. But, not only that, in the last January-February, the TNI also provided great assistance in the evacuation of our people in Wuhan, Japan, and crew ship members in order for them to return to the country. This is what I want to state this morning.

Reporter
Any other special message, sir, to the chiefs of staff?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Yes, to carry on with …, in order to discipline the public to comply with the health protocols, related to this, wearing masks, then washing hands, keeping a distance, avoiding crowds, I think that is what we need to continuously impose to the public.
