DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan stated that all parties must be vigilant to prevent Jakarta from entering the critical phase. To prevent Jakarta from entering the critical phase, Anies has extended the Micro PPKM until June 28.
“The spike in active cases, which has increased significantly in recent weeks, has forced all parties to be extra vigilant to prevent the capital city from entering the critical phase after the Eid al-Fitr holiday. Therefore, intervention from all parties, as well as the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government through Decree No. 759 of 2021 and Ingub No. 39 of 2021 again extend the application of restrictions on Micro Community Activities (PPKM) until June 28, 2021,” Anies said in a written statement as quoted on Thursday (17/6/2021).
Anies emphasized that his party had strengthened synergies to anticipate that Jakarta would not enter a critical phase. Based on last year’s experience, if Jakarta enters the critical phase, the DKI Provincial Government must pull the emergency brake which will have an impact on the economy.
“The capital city is now in a condition that requires extra attention. If the current conditions are out of control, we will enter a critical phase, and if that phase occurs, then we must take drastic steps like what happened in September and February last year. “This is not repeated. For that, the two elements must work together. Elements of the people with the government and law enforcement, must collaborate, the community runs 3M and we (in government) all implement 3T,” said Anies.
Anies asked Jakarta residents to be more aware of the dangers of Corona and its mutation. He reminded residents to follow the micro PPKM rules. In addition to the many variants of the new Corona, the COVID-19 explosion is thought to have occurred from the 2021 Eid holiday cluster. It is known that many people do not comply with the government’s advice not to go home. There are even those who deliberately go home through the rat route and ride a vegetable truck to get to their hometown.
