Should the registrants pass the administrative and other preliminary procedures, Bio Farma will administer them with the first dose of the experimental vaccine and later take their blood samples after 14 days.After that, the company will give the volunteers a second dose and take their blood samples again after another 14 days.“I will also register myself as a volunteer with Bio Farma,” Arya told reporters on Tuesday. “I have sent my ID card and I will enlist myself soon.”“Hopefully, I can also invite other citizens to volunteer so we can contribute to the nation and the state,” he said, “Hopefully, this vaccine can be used in our nation and in others. I hope this will be successful.” Topics : Read also: Indonesia teams up with global manufacturers in vaccine huntPadjajaran University in Bandung, West Java, and the Health Ministry will also assist in the clinical trial of the vaccine, Arya added.The national COVID-19 task force previously said that the test would take place in Bandung.Bio Farma secretary Bambang Heriyanto said recently that the human trials in Indonesia would be for the third phase as the candidate vaccine had passed the first and second human trial phases in China, kompas.com reported.The first phase sought to test whether the vaccine would be safe for humans while the second phase examined its efficacy against COVID-19.Bambang also said that the tester team was looking for 1,620 volunteers in Indonesia as Sinovac would also conduct the trials in Brazil, Chile, Turkey and Bangladesh.Padjajaran University Medical School professor Kusnandi Rusmil previously said that he hoped the vaccine could pass the third phase as early as next January and could be followed by immediate distribution by the Health Ministry.Bio Farma president director Honesti Basyir has outlined plans to distribute 40 million doses of the vaccine per year as soon as the government authorizes its widespread usage, with plans to expand distribution capacity to 250 million doses a year. State-owned pharmaceutical holding company PT Bio Farma is looking for volunteers to assist in the clinical trial of a COVID-19 candidate vaccine developed in partnership with Chinese biopharmaceutical firm Sinovac Biotech, a ministry official has said.Arya Sinulingga, an aide to State-Owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir, said the company was looking for Indonesians who fulfilled the requirements to help in testing the candidate vaccine for its first tryouts in the country.Volunteers should be healthy adults between the age of 18 and 59 years old with no history of having contracted COVID-19 — tested either through rapid or repeated polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, Arya said. Additionally, volunteers who register in the program should not participate in other clinical trials.

The design of our streets continues to raise heated debate. Only recently The Times reported that that shared space schemes are causing “chaos and catastrophe” for road users.To dismiss shared space schemes out of hand, however, is to overlook the many benefits they can bring for our streetscape. Shared space projects aim to promote a more decluttered approach to public realm design, minimising street furniture, from traffic lights and kerbs to signs and road markings, to reduce the physical differentiators between road vehicles and other users.Our public spaces have become victims of excessive clutter, home to an array of signs, road markings, barriers, street furniture, signals and lighting columns European research projects pioneered by Dutch traffic engineer, Hans Monderman, have shown that these public realm decluttering schemes can help to both reduce traffic congestion and accident rates. By removing traffic controls, drivers must pay more careful attention to pedestrians and cyclists as a cue for their behaviour, encouraging them to drive more slowly and be more observant about their surroundings. Similar initiatives have now spread around the world to countries including South Africa, Australia, Japan, Brazil and Canada.With placemaking a key concern for development projects, we should also not forget the aesthetic improvements a more streamlined approach to our streets can offer. Our public spaces have become victims of excessive clutter, home to an array of signs, road markings, barriers, street furniture, signals and lighting columns – many of which could be amalgamated or removed to the benefit of our cities, towns and villages and the communities they serve.The implementation of shared space schemes certainly needs careful planning and must take into account the needs of all road users, as well as thinking about how these might change over time.However, the key to making them a success lies with road users. We need to drive behavioural change among motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. Amending the Highway Code, as proposed by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), may be one way to do this.Whatever the means, educating road users to help them adapt to this new approach to street design will ensure it can live up to its name; making our public realm more inclusive and sharing the benefits for all.David Smith is development director at infrastructure services company FM Conway read more
