Stay Alert 

With the enactment of PPKM level 1, it will indeed relax our activities outside the home. Amid the increasing activities in public areas, transmission of Covid-19 needs to be controlled and does not present a risk of a third wave of Covid-19 infections in Indonesia. So, we must not be complacent in maintaining health protocols. More importantly, make sure you are vaccinated to make your activities safer. For those of you who haven't been vaccinated, you can easily register for vaccinations with JAKI. Let's try to protect ourselves and those around us from Covid-19.
