He also hopes that what Jokowi conveys is in accordance with the conditions on the ground.
“Hopefully the situation on the ground will be according to the instructions of Mr. President @jokowi. Because there are still those who sell Rp. 900,000 and even outside Java it reaches Rp. 1.5 million,” said Dr. Tirta on his personal Instagram account which was seen Monday (16/8/2021).
dr Tirta then highlighted a number of difficulties for people outside Java in undergoing PCR tests. In addition to the high price of PCR tests, he said access to undergo PCR tests is also still difficult.
