It has been 18 months since the first COVID-19 cases were found in Indonesia. A lot of progress has been made since – the government began a vaccination program in mid-January 2021 and aims to inoculate 70 percent of the population by the end of year.

The government is easing restrictions in more areas as new cases are declining since August 2021, which is good news for the tourism and hospitality sectors.
