The task force said it expects Indonesia to record zero FMD cases by the end of 2022.

"We are working with a time frame of six months since the task force was created. We hope that at the end of this year, we can control the situation in which the number of reported positive cases will decline from time to time," government spokesperson for FMD handling, Wiku Adisasmito, said.

Six Indonesian provinces have been declared free of new FMD cases, the task force reported.

The efforts to reduce the FMD caseload have involved strict control and routine coordination between the central and regional governments for preventing further transmission of the disease, Adisasmito said.
