The numbers are holding well. We are not seeing the blow-out some thought might erupt after the holidays. But as we know, seroprevalence studies reveal there are not many who have not developed antibodies.

Indonesia has eased up on its Covid restrictions in a couple of ways:

- Those who are travelling and who are fully vaccinated (that is, 2 doses where that is the norm) are no longer  required to undertake additional tests (whether PCR or rapid). This applies to international arrivals and domestic travel. (The ban on eating and drinking during less than 2 hour trips has also quietly disappeared).

- Masks are no longer generally required outdoors - only in crowds. Masks are still required indoors.
