By modifying control methods from other countries, Jokowi said, the spread of Covid-19 in the country is claimed to be slowly starting to decline.
The decline was also seen in other indicators such as the occupancy of beds in hospitals, which is now at 30 percent. In fact, in May 2021 it had reached 29 percent and jumped drastically to almost 80 percent in July 2021.
