IDI or Ikatan Dokter Indonesia predicted that Omicron is almost at its peak and it is predicted to happen between February and March 2022. This prediction is not just a hoax but it comes from the result after reflecting from other countries such as South Africa and England. Omicron has already reached the peak in both countries. The government of Indonesia just wants to reduce the positivity rate though the case is still under control. The main cause of Omicron transmission is from the people themselves especially those who go aboard.

The people who come and go aboard tend to have more risk to catch the new variant of Covid-19 while many people also mind to stay quarantine for about 10 days or less. It makes the positivity rate in Indonesia increases and every day, the new case will be found.
