He explained that the existing budget had been submitted to districts and cities for handling COVID-19, such as helping hospitals and providing health facilities.
“The COVID-19 handling activities and activities are still being carried out so that if the regency / city makes an application and needs to be facilitated, then the budget team together with the COVID-19 team will meet, where after instructions from the new leadership are helped to be followed up,” he said.
