Jakarta, July 30 (TIWN) Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Tuesday warned of a possible second wave of the COVID-19 transmission.

The warning came amid the resurgence of the virus in some foreign nations after the relaxation of lockdowns and reopening business activities, reports Xinhua news agency.

He called on the authorities to keep and step up precautionary strides in facing the threat.

“We must keep on alert over the possibility of the second wave and anticipating it,” Jokowi told a limited cabinet meeting.

The warning came after the head of state conveyed the country’s convincing economic growth prospect with an estimate of 5.4 per cent next year as predicted by the International Monetary Fund.

“I think this is a high growth projection, and should this be materialized, it suggests that our economy will accelerate at the fastest pace among the global economic expansion,” he said.
