The government has teased out a plan to change its approach to dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in recent weeks; rather than waging a zero-sum battle against a disease that has infected over 4 million people and killed over 130,000 across the country, authorities are now considering the possibility of living with COVID-19 indefinitely.

 

On Monday, Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin told the media that he was working on standards for treating the coronavirus as an endemic disease.
Transitioning from a pandemic to an endemic disease – when a virus has a continuous presence in a population within a geographic area – appears to be motivated by a sense of hope that the state would be able to limit risks and protect those in need in a predictable manner.
