Prevent Corona, Jokowi Affirms Indonesia is in the need of IoT and AI
President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) delivered six important things to stem the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) in Indonesia. Jokowi conveyed this issue in the opening of the Plenary Cabinet Session at the Bogor Presidential Palace, Tuesday (4/14/2020). For the first step to break the transmission chain of Covid-19, Jokowi requested that the testing of Covid-19 samples massively be increased by aggressive tracking, and followed tight insulation.
“This is to the Chairman of the Task Force, the Minister of Health, the National Police assisted by the TNI to give attention to the first one that I said,” stressed Jokowi quoted from YouTube Kompas tv, Tuesday (4/14/2020).
Then the second is the adequate medical infrastructure support, including the use of technology, both in terms of body sensors to the internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).
In this case, Jokowi said that cooperation with the technology companies had been carried out using telemedicine.
“I really appreciate it, now we have used it in collaboration with technology companies using telemedicine,” he said.
“So that people do not need to physically see a doctor, they do not need to go to the hospital, but they can consult via telemedicine,” he added
While the third thing, said Jokowi, is about effective and transparent communication with the media.
“This must be done in detail and well,” Jokowi said.
