He. The study discusses new protocols and economic stimulus policies to run LSDP sub-sectors.

Ending the exposure to the research plan, Ir. Tri Achmadi said that to prepare a good new normal setting of life, it is necessary to find a point of equilibrium between health and economics. It conveys, the bridge between the two is technology. “Health, economics and technology are then translated into a protocol, which also meets the requirements of WHO and IMO,” he concluded.
