The head of state, citing Maluku Governor Murad Ismail’s report, noted that the COVID-19 vaccine had been administered to 116 thousand people in Maluku Province, including 30 thousand individuals in its capital city Ambon.
“We are upbeat about achieving the target (of vaccination),” Jokowi noted on the sidelines of a mass vaccination conducted at the Dr J. Leimena General Hospital, Ambon.
On the occasion, the president also inaugurated the Dr J. Leimena General Hospital (RSUP), whose construction work began in 2017.
“We are optimistic of this hospital providing its highest services to people in the eastern part of Indonesia, especially in Maluku Province, and Ambon City,” he stated.
