Indonesia urged to increase airport security to avert third wave: IDI

Semarang, Central Java Head of the Indonesian Medical Association (IDI) Daeng M. Faqih urged the Indonesian Government to boost security at the airport, as Indonesia’s entry point from overseas, to prevent the risk of a third wave of COVID-19.

“The COVID-19 task force and the government must guard the entry points to Indonesia to avoid falling for (the third COVID-19 wave),” Faqih stated in Semarang on Saturday.

The association’s head called to give special attention to this issue, especially after learning from the earlier example of COVID-19 Delta variant cases that came from overseas.

Epidemiologists have projected a third or fourth wave of COVID-19 that threatens Indonesia. Currently, some regions increased the level of community activities restrictions, he pointed out.

He also drew attention to cases of COVID-19 found at the Papua XX National Sports Week.

Faqih deemed the condition as alarming, and called on all to beware of it and stay vigilant.

He pushed for stricter implementation of health protocols on an ongoing basis in various public activities.
