Some scholars view that corona virus pandemic has influence the way global politics on process. The changes would be in interaction among countries, organization and even people. Countries’ s border as can be seen nowadays already in very tight supervision. One of implication of border issues is no regular flight in and out in easy way.

Transportation is one field which already felt it. Several airlines in the world even the most profitable one should adjust the new situation. After five month since January when covid-19 was still in China, some airlines has talked on reducing its staff. Some airline companies has grounded most of its air fleet.

Other implication of Covid-19 is related to economic situation at almost all countries. As transportation restriction become common in the world, goods traffic are also on halted. Export and import of manufacturing good except essential one like food and medicine might decline more than 50%. It means that export countries could send their product and in same time importing country could received regular product.

In one side, relations among countries mostly depend on importance of issues and needed. Political issues among countries might in less important compare to survival measures in every countries to keep Covid-19 contained and to make people secure. It could be solidarity in the world in raised compare to conflict mood.

However, one of prediction of Covid-19 is the raising of China in world scene. The China – origin of Covid-19 – in very short time could contain and recover from the disease. At least the China’s decisive responses to the pandemic has gave the country ability to maneuver in the world. For example, global diplomacy of China has helped it to establish image as strong and capable country. In this particular situation, China seems be viewed as winner one compare with US, for example. ***

Penambahan kasus Covid-19 harian di Indonesia mencapai rekor tertinggi 2.657 kasus baru, pada Kamis (09/07). Tambahan terbesar dari klaster Sekolah Calon Perwira-Secapa AD di Bandung, Jawa Barat

Penambahan kasus baru harian positif virus corona ini mendorong jumlah keseluruhan kasus positif di Indonesia mencapai 70.736 orang.

Demikian dimuat di BBC Indonesia.

Data baru itu menunjukkan bahwa penyebaran Covid-19 di Indonesia belum selesai, bahkan belum mencapai puncaknya.

Brebagai langkah telah dicoba namun sikap tidak disiplin dan tidak hati-hati masyarakat menyebabkan kebijakan transisi PSBB atau bahkan bebas dari PSBB menjadi sia-sia.

Sudah diketahui umum bahwa gejala virus corona ini tidak bisa diketahui setelah 14 hari. Menuju hari ke-14 apabila badan seseorang sehat dan fit, gejala hampir tidak akan kelihatan. Kecuali, manusianya berumur lansia baru gejala itu akan terlihat secara kasat mata.

Kondisi inilah yang kemudian karena sikap tidak hati-hati, memudahkan dan serba santai menyebabkan pembendungan Covid-19 ini menjadi sangat sulit. Dan apabila ini terus berlanjut, ketika negara lain sudah bersiap pulih Indonesia kemungkinan akan terlambat. Dan jika terlambat konsekuensinya banyak.

Yang pertama tentu korban akan bertambah lagi, saat ini saja 10 Juli 2020 sudah mencapai 3.469. Di Asia Tenggara situasi di Indonesia jelas masuk kategori paling parah.

Konsekuensi lainnya, rumah sakit dan fasilitas kesehatan akan kewalahan melayani pasien sementara tenaga kesehatan juga terbatas.

Lebih lagi pada kegiatan ekonomi akan semakin lama terhambatnya dan semakin parah dampaknya. Kalau seandaianya kuartal pertama saja sudah turun dua persen maka ancaman pemulihan tahun depan semakin jauh dari harapan.

Selain ekonomi kehidupan sosial seperti pendidikan juga akan mengalami kesulitan baru. Sementara negara lain sudah memprediksi September akan dibuka lagi sekolah dengan protokol kesehatan, Di Indonesia dengan situasi yang tidak disiplin mungkin akan mundur lagi.
