Previously, the Executive Board of the Indonesian Doctors Association (PB IDI) asked each party to use the experience of handling the COVID-19 pandemic as a lesson in being aware of and facing global health challenges in the future.
“We all PB IDI hope that the experience during the COVID-19 pandemic can always be used as a valuable lesson to face global health challenges,” said Chairperson of the PB IDI COVID-19 Task Force Erlina Burhan.
Erlina said that when reflecting on herself facing the pandemic over the past three years, Indonesia has lost a lot of lives, not only from ordinary people, but also from thousands of doctors in all fields.
Indonesia has even been faced with limited beds to treat patients in hospitals. The crisis point also occurred when the Delta variant attacked in mid-July 2021.
From this experience, Indonesia learned a valuable lesson that both health protocols and vaccinations can prevent more widespread COVID-19 infection. Now, the knowledge and awareness of the people in all corners of the country can be considered quite comprehensive regarding Clean and Healthy Behavior (PHBS).
