TRIBUNBATAM.id - Public Health Expert from the Faculty of Public Health, University of Indonesia (FKM UI), Iwan Ariawan, said that at least 85 percent of people in DKI Jakarta must wear masks to support the success of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB). 

The increase in the use of masks is recommended after the PSBB in DKI Jakarta has been loosened again. 

"From our previous analysis, for a big city like DKI Jakarta, it takes 55 percent or more, residents stay at home to reduce transmission on Covid-19," said Iwan in an online talk show with the Covid-19 Handling Task Force which was broadcast on the channel. YouTube BNPB, Friday (11/9/2020). 

"Still based on existing research, if later the PSBB is loosened, the coverage of the use of masks by the community is 85 percent to be able to maintain the conditions during the PSBB," he continued. 

According to Iwan, the public has not yet fully understood the risk perception of Covid-19 transmission. 

This is a factor in not all people wearing masks consistently. 

According to Iwan, this condition must be observed and understood. 

"This is related to risk perceptions. Many people consider 'my risk of contracting it is low' or 'I am unlikely to be infected.' So, we must correct this assumption," he continued.

"Because, at this time everyone is very likely to be infected with Covid-19," added Irwan.
