No that is simplistic; understanding the mortaliteit rate and the statistics is extremely important now to decide on testing methods and approach towards the general public. If those reported numbers are not correct, the health care professionals as virologists and CDC can't give accurate advice.

I am being simplistic because we KNOW the numbers are incorrect , the virologists & scientists know the numbers are incorrect, the governments know the numbers are incorrect...
In essence govts, globally have been sideswiped by something that has been predicted/foreseen for several years.
Specialists said it was a When not If scenario.& yet govts have all still been caught with their pants down.
When the virus is popping up on barely inhabited islands , yet large countries with lots of international travel are showing barely anything- then we know the numbers are wrong.

I suspect Indonesia's numbers have already past some kind of viral tipping point where due to lack of preparedness, government inaction, religious fatalism etc, the virus will now take a massive toll. Optimism has been a curse of mine through life, but I really do fear the worst for Indonesia now.

Apologies for sounding somewhat pessimistic or alarmist, but, well....

I have to agree with you.
I still have no clue what is being done in my area.
there has been no info from our village head, just a car going round with speakers calling out distorted messages that I couldn't decipher, hubby couldn't either.
So I am treating it as if everyone around us is contaminated and taking relevant precautions.

Tegal blocks roads into city in first attempt to impose lockdown in Indonesia

The Tegal administration in Central Java has decided to lock the city down to protect its residents from the coronavirus outbreak, which has reached 27 of the country's 34 provinces. The measure will be implemented for four months from March 30 to July 31.

We plan for a full lockdown. All borders will be closed for the safety of all."

That's essentially preventing people from mudik. Doesn't bode well...

The unions are seriously considering demonstrations to demand the full THR (the 'Lebaran' bonus) and full wages since some employers seem to (want to) lower the amount.
I'm not pro-labor or pro-business, but I heard Kapolri banning mass gatherings, so how can they demonstrate unless it's illegal? In reality, many SMEs are running low on cash, bankruptcy is inevitable if this drags on. Big corporations can issue bonds like the government is suggesting. But no suggestion on how to help the small businesses.

"... modelling by Indonesian researchers suggests infections will skyrocket from just 790 confirmed cases to half the population, inundating a health system that's unlikely to cope with medicos already forced to wear raincoats as more protective gear is ordered."

Unfortunately I can't help but believe the news article contained within this quote. The government leadership has done far to little and next to nothing to prevent an explosion of this virus in the fear they may offend some! Sadly I don't see it getting better anytime soon!
Back to Netflix/Youtube/etc.
