Voice of Indonesia holds Diplomatic Forum talk show themed Global Cooperation in Dealing with Epidemics at the Jusuf Ronodipuro Auditorium, RRI Jakarta, Wednesday, February 19, 2020. The COVID-19 epidemic, known as Corona Virus, has become the most interesting case in early 2020. The World Health Organization (WHO) even declared COVID-19 as the World-Anxious Public Health Emergency (PHEIC). Voice of Indonesia Director Agung Susatyo said the declaration showed the need for world attention on the status of COVID-19. Moreover COVID-19 was also declared a Public Health Emergency. Agung conveyed that world attention was not only needed to anticipate COVID-19 so it would not spread to their respective countries, but more than that, cooperation among countries is needed to overcome this issue. Global cooperation in handling COVID-19 and all other health challenges, according to Agung, will accelerate the handling of victims. In addition, this collaboration can anticipate the possibility of an outbreak and avoid the recurrence of similar incidents in the future. Until Tuesday (02/18/2020) the Chinese National Health Commission released the death rate due to COVID-19 has reached 1,868 people. The talk show features speakers Ambassador of Singapore to Indonesia Anil Kumar Nayar; Acep Somantri, SIP, MBA, Head of the Foreign Cooperation Bureau, Ministry of Health; and Arianto Surojo, Counsellor of Indonesian Embassy in Beijing, China. // (VOI Release 19.2 '20.mar/AHM)
