Because of the experience a few years ago, after Nataru tripled. The increase after Eid was the highest. Therefore, we want to ensure that the acceleration of vaccination can be completed before Nataru,” said Sigit.

Of course, we hope that the Covid-19 pandemic will continue to achieve its economic growth target. 2021 by 3.7-4.5%.
