本周好消息来自海南。印尼国有企业部部长埃里克·托希尔（Erick Thohir）和外交长Retno L.P. Marsudi飞往三亚市。那就是中国海南岛的库塔（Kuta）海滩。他们在那见到了中国外交部长王毅。初始协议已签署，即于2021年1月，印尼可以从北京科兴（Sinovac）购买5000万安瓿瓶的新冠肺炎疫苗。
实际上，媒体报道并不详尽：所谓的购买5000万安瓿瓶具体是什么。万隆的Bio Farma 有可能根据Sinovac和Bio Farma之间的贸易协议生产自己的产品，不是吗?
另一种可能性是，万隆的第三阶段临床试验尚未达成一个贸易协议。因此，正是在海南会议上，Bio Farma开始获得生产五千万多剂量疫苗的权利。接下来的数百万疫苗将回头再讨论，尤其是对每100万安瓿瓶的疫苗，Bio Farma需要向Sinovac支付多少人民币。
哎呀…… 昨天，我终于从Bio Farma得到了确认。事实上，第一可能性是正确的。购买5000万安瓿瓶疫苗产品，仅仅是因为它们在那里（中国）已被允许生产。至于印尼的生产，我们仍然必须等着万隆第三阶段临床试验的结果。我们仍然必须等待印尼食品及药物管理局的分销许可出来。
Iwan是Bio Farma 公关部主管。这批量货物将在三个月内分阶段运出。Iwan昨天说：“11月为1000万瓶、12月份为1000万瓶，1月、2月、3月份也将为1000万瓶。”
疫苗到达万隆后，Bio Farma将负责装瓶等工作。“所以，其疫苗还是有印尼国内组件”，Iwan 接着说。
因此，我认为从中国先购买疫苗是一个快速的措施。我为埃里克·托希尔（Erick Thohir）的团队能够找到这匹马的道路而鼓掌。直到今天，Bio Farma的总裁董事本人仍在中国，以便能够在这场大流行中亲自地见Sinovac的领导们。
何况，印尼政府已将明年的经济定于提高4.5% 至5% 增长目标。非常乐观的数字。 我甚感到震惊。
“我们的人民如何成为豚鼠”的问题-为什么领导人不这样做？例如：菲律宾总统杜特德或俄罗斯总统普京的女儿； 尤其是埃里克·托希尔（Erick Thohir）发表声明不想自愿参加临床试验之后。埃里克不可能成为一名志愿者，甚至他没有居住在万隆，即必须接近位于万隆Bio Farma的总部。
因此，西爪哇省生长，Ridwan Kamil 迅速解决该问题是正确的。他立刻注册当志愿者。同样，Siliwangi军事指挥官和西爪哇省警察局长。
“我是在8月25日进行注射的，” Ridwan Kamil昨天打电话时说。 指的是明天星期二。
Bio Farma并不是第一次与Sinovac合作。例如，在脊髓灰质炎疫苗接种计划中，Bio Farma还与北京科兴合作过。
现在每个人都在等待新冠肺炎疫苗。尤其是如果您昨天看到了DI Way Daily的新闻：现在在北京，不再务必戴口罩了。感觉于今年八月，正是像北京人民在庆祝自己的独立似的。

GOOD NEWS this week comes from Hainan. State-Owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir and Foreign Minister Retno L.P. Marsudi flew to the city of Sanya. And that is the Hainan Island’s Kuta Beach in China. They met Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister, Wang Yi there. An initial agreement was signed: Indonesia could buy 50 million ampoules of Covid-19 vaccine from Sinovac in January 2021.
Indeed, the media reports are not detailed: what the so-called buying 50 million ampoules is. It is possible for Bio Farma Bandung to produce its own production based on a trade agreement between Sinovac and Bio Farma, isn’t it？
Perhaps Indonesia wants to get the vaccine more quickly without waiting for Bio Farma, which can only be produced after the results of the phase 3 clinical trial have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
In China, the third phase clinical trial has already been carried out. China was able to produce it earlier. As the 50 million ampoules were used up, that’s exactly when Bio Farma will be allowed to start producing.
I predict like that.
Another possibility, is that the third phase clinical trial in Bandung has not been followed by a trade agreement. So, it was at the Hainan meeting that Bio Farma began to get the right to produce 50 millions vaccine. And the next millions will be discussed later, especially how much Yuan need to be paid by Bio Farma to Sinovac for each 1 million ampoule of the vaccine.
Whatever possibility doesn’t matter. I consider it is a quick step to take.
Oops… I finally got a confirmation from Bio Farma, which was yesterday. In fact, the first possibility was the right one. The purchase of 50 million units is solely because they had been allowed to be produced there. As for production in Indonesia, we still have to wait for the results of the third phase clinical trial in Bandung. We still have to wait for distribution permission from Indonesia FDA （BPOM).
It means that there will be shipments of 50 million units of vaccine directly from China. The shipment, according to Iwan Setiawan, will be in bulk form, not in the form of small bottles.
Iwan is the Head of Communication Department of Bio Farma. Those shipments be delivered in stages starting in three months. “10 million units in November, 10 million more in December, and also in January, February, March will be 10 million every month,” said Iwan yesterday.
After the vaccines arrive in Bandung, Bio Farma will manage the bottling and so on. “So, there will be domestic components,” said Iwan.
He continued saying that Bio Farma will only produce its own vaccine after the third phase clinical trial has been evaluated and declared successful.
So I consider buying from China is an swift step. I applaud that Erick Thohir’s team was able to find the horse’s path. President Director of Bio Farma himself is in China till today, to be able to meet Sinovac in person in the midst of this pandemic.
The meeting between the two Indonesian ministers and the Chinese Foreign Minister chose a place in Hainan. What a right choice. Hainan is only 3.5 hours of direct flight from Jakarta, by a charter plane. They can immediately return to Jakarta that very day, without having to spend a night there.
That fast movement is indeed the characterize of people like Erick Thohir.
Moreover, the government has targeted next year’s economic growth from 4.5 to 5%. The very optimistic numbers. I even got shocked.
It means that priorities for vaccination must be linked to sectors of the economy: factory employees, flight attendants and crew members, market communities, and so on.
Anyone who is prioritized, nonetheless is good for all. With 40 million people are going to be vaccinated, this means that the potential for infection will also decrease.
So far, the negative issues have subsided. There is no more halal-haram issue, and without any words abuse occurred.
The issue of ‘how come our people become guinea pigs’—why not the leaders? Such as Duterde, President of Philippines, or the daughter of Russia President, Putin; especially after Erick Thohir gave a statement that he did not want to volunteer for clinical trials. Erick is impossible to be a volunteer though, he even doesn’t live in Bandung – that has to be close to Bio Farma which headquartered in Bandung.
So it was right when the Governor of West Java Ridwan Kamil, quickly put down the issue. He immediately registered to be a volunteer. Likewise, Siliwangi Military Commander and the Regional Chief of Police.
“I got my injection turn on August 25,” said Ridwan Kamil when I called yesterday. It means on Tuesday (25 Aug 2020).
The governor feels that he has received a complete explanation of the consequences of volunteering. Including having to undergo two injections. He feels safe.
Why it has to be twice? “It’s because this vaccine is not from a Covid-19 attenuated virus, but from a killed virus”, he said. That was an explanation he received. And this vaccine is literally safer.
So far, China has not found any negative effects from this vaccine.
This also means that Bio Farma will have to produce twice as many as the people whom should be vaccinated.
Even if Erick is also talking to two other Chinese vaccine companies now, that doesn’t mean he doubts Sinovac. It merely considers the production capacity of the vaccine factory. Which won’t be as big as the demands of the whole world.
Bio Farma is not the first time in cooperation with Sinovac. In the polio vaccination program, for example, Bio Farma also collaborated with Sinovac.
Sinovac shares, which have long gone public on the Nasdaq New York capital market, experienced a substantial increase not only due to the Covid-19 vaccine, but also when they started producing hepatitis A and B vaccines first. While the name Bio Farma is popular when it came to producing bird flu vaccines.
Now everyone is waiting for the Covid-19 vaccine.
Especially if you saw the DI’s Way Daily news yesterday: now in Beijing, it is no longer obligatory to wear masks. It feels like in this August, it is Beijing’s people who are celebrating their independence.
