The head of Idza, Ganjar requested that mass events not be held in the middle of a pandemic.
He asked all parties to have a great sense of concern and awareness regarding the danger of spreading Covid-19.
“This is still developing in Java (Covid-19). Almost all points, in Central Java, West Java, East Java and DIY also still occur. So let’s have sense about that, “he said.
More thrust of mass testing or PCR events
Instead of holding a mass entertainment program, Ganjar asked the Brebes Regent to focus on conducting mass tests to find out the spread of Covid-19 in his area.
“Testing-testing this mass is actually activity driven. I want to try to do massive tests first in all regions of Brebes to find out what the map is like. In my opinion it’s much better, “he stressed.
After the mass test, the conditions of the sub-district and village can be mapped.
“If you want an event, you choose which one is green, which sub-district, which village, who can take part, what kind of health protocol. To find out where the red, yellow and green areas can only be discovered when a mass test has been done,” said he.
