Central Jakarta PPKUKM Sub-agency Head, Melinda Sagala conveyed, 2,500 fostered traders who had been vaccinated now opened their business in 65 temporary locations (Loksem) and 4 fostered traders in fostered location (Lokbin) throughout 8 sub-districts.
According to her, 1,500 other fostered traders were still waiting to be vaccinated.
"Other traders who haven't been vaccinated are those who have just recovered after being exposed, are still in their hometowns and waiting to be scheduled for vaccination," she informed, Wednesday (8/4).
