Disaster sociologist expert Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore Sulfikar Amir said, the majority of Jakarta residents were confident they would not be infected with COVID-19.

This can be seen from the survey results which showed 77 percent of respondents felt the risk of contracting COVID-19 was very small. The survey in question is a survey conducted by NTU in collaboration with the Opposition COVID-19

“They consider the risk of contracting COVID-19 is very small. At the individual level around 77 percent thought they would not be affected by COVID-19, it is very unlikely to be affected, “Sulfikar was quoted as saying from

Sulfikar revealed this in a webinar, Sunday July 5, 2020.

Likewise at the level of contracting with those closest to them like family. Sulfikar explained, the respondents considered it less likely to be infected from their immediate family or people.

“At the level of people around (the closest), the same figure is around 76 percent perceive the possibility is very small,” said Sulfikar.

Almost the same number is also seen from the respondent’s answer when asked how likely it is that people in the environment such as neighbors and residences transmit COVID-19.

“That’s a relatively high 70 percent chance of contracting it is very small,” he said.

Surely the results of the respondents, said Sulfikar, had an influence on the behavior of the people of Jakarta who might have implemented health protocols. But less alert because they feel less likely to be infected.

The confidence of the Jakarta people who felt they would not be infected with COVID-19, said Sulfikar, could be caused because many of them did not know the people around their neighborhood who had been affected by COVID-19.

As many as 94 percent of respondents answered that they did not know anyone who had been infected with COVID-19. “So the majority of people in Jakarta, it could be that perception (less likely to be infected) because they have never seen people affected by COVID-19,” he said.
