When we asked expats and global nomads in Indonesia about their experiences during the pandemic with the local healthcare system, they replied...

"The pandemic has had a significant impact on the healthcare system in Indonesia. The government has implemented a number of measures to help contain the spread of the virus, including the closure of schools, the suspension of public transportation, and the implementation of social distancing protocols. Hospitals have been overwhelmed with patients, leading to long wait times and a shortage of medical supplies. The government has also implemented a number of initiatives to help support the healthcare system, such as providing additional funding for medical personnel and equipment, and increasing access to telemedicine services. Despite these efforts, the healthcare system in Indonesia is still struggling to cope with the pandemic," commented one expat who made the move to Indonesia.
