goodmorningpapua.com – Good news about the corona virus at the beginning of 2022 also mentioned that Jayapura City, which previously had the highest transmission rate, had no more findings of Covid-19 cases since December 21 and for the first time Jayapura City has a Covid-19 green zone.
The Mayor of Jayapura, Benhur Tomi Mano, hopes that his residents will continue to be disciplined in health protocols (prokes) so that the spread of Covid-19 can be anticipated.
“In addition, the government is still accelerating vaccination, which currently covers more than 76 percent. If people quickly receive vaccinations, then herd immunity in this city will quickly be formed and people can return to their normal activities,” he said recently.
In accelerating vaccination, Jayapura City has also started to vaccinate children aged 6-11 years.
Including tightening the restrictions for travelers at the port Jayapura. “Passengers who disembark in Jayapura City must show complete vaccinations. This is to anticipate the spread of the Omicron variant that has spread in Jakarta,” he said.
The Jayapura City Government will also tighten it in Skouw, the location of the border between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
“If the border route is to be opened, it will be carried out 3 times a week with strict procedures, because from the border location, not only people from Papua New Guinea enter, but also from China and Thailand, so it must be tightened,” he said.
