"Motorcycle taxi drivers, taxi drivers, and fishermen who have motorcycle or car loans, I tell them not to worry because interest payments or installments are given leeway for one year," Jokowi said.

Not only that, the Government will also provide relief for small and medium sector entrepreneurs who have loans under Rp 10 billion. They will be given a one-year postponement of installments and a decrease in interest.

Fifth, the Central Government will provide a budget of Rp 405.1 trillion through the 2020 State Budget (APBN). This policy has been established through a Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perpu) on Economic Stability in the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The health sector budget will be prioritized for the protection of health workers, especially the purchase of PPE, the purchase of health equipment such as test kits, reagents, ventilators and others.

"And the referral hospital upgrade includes an athlete guesthouse, incentives for doctors, nurses and hospital staff as well as compensation for the death of medical personnel and handling other health problems," Jokowi said, Tuesday (3/31/2020).
