'Most Inconvenient Time': Anies Reflects on Covid-19 Daily Victims
jpnn.com, JAKARTA - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has reflected on his unpleasant experience during the peak of Covid-19 where he had to monitor the numbers on the victims daily.
Anies said that he was always nervous and afraid when the sunset arrived because that was when the daily numbers would be counted.
"From maghrib [sunset prayer around 6 p.m.] until 7 p.m., it was the most inconvenient time because that afternoon hour was the closing time for the data service on daily deaths," said Anies in Menteng, Central Jakarta, Sunday (26/12).
He said that every afternoon, the City Parks and Forest Agency head would send him the daily numbers on new cases and deaths due to Covid-19.
The former Education and Culture Minister admitted that the numbers often made him sad.
"It's not just statistics, it's our brothers and sisters," he said. "It was a very painful time."
Anies said that the Covid-19 pandemic was indeed a very big test. But he is now grateful that the numbers have been quite under control.
"We are all grateful. Thank God, now the condition is much better," he said. (mcr4/mcr20/jpnn)
