Seeing the positive cases of the Covid-19 in Indonesia continue to increase, President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) said that his party must continue to work hard to increase the recovery rate and reduce the death rate.

Jokowi explained that the target recovery rate for Covid-19 patients in Indonesia must be higher than the world recovery rate.

"As of September 13, the average active case in Indonesia was 25.02 or slightly higher than the world's active case, which is 24.78. Then there are also 155,010 recovery cases with a recovery rate of 71 percent," Jokowi said at the Presidential Palace, on Monday.

"The average recovery in Indonesia is 71 percent, also slightly lower than the world recovery rate. I think we continue to pursue the global average recovery, the world recovery average," he added.

Besides increasing the recovery rate, Jokowi also emphasized his staff to reduce the number of Covid-19 deaths. According to him, the death rate in Indonesia is still higher than the world death rate, although the trend is decreasing.

"The government must also work hard to reduce the mortality rate. The death rate in Indonesia has continued to decline from 4.49 in the last month to 3.99 percent. Even though this figure is still higher than the world's death rate of 3.18. percent," he said.

"But this figure is 3.99, which has decreased compared to the death rate a week ago, which was at 4.02 percent," he explained.

He said the increase in the national death rate was because of the high mortality rate in 4 provinces, namely Bengkulu, South Sumatra, Central Java, and East Java.

Based on these conditions, Jokowi emphasized that the central government continues to provide full support to the four provinces in reducing the death rate.

"If we look in more detail, the high mortality rate is because there are 4 provinces that have a death rate above 6 percent. Now, this data is needed in detail, so it informs the province," he said.

"Then we also the central government provide full support to it so it can reduce the death rate in the provinces of Bengkulu, South Sumatra, Central Java, and East Java." Jokowi said. (RRI)
