Poverty rate rises in March as pandemic hits vulnerable communities

Posted on by

first_imgAround 1.63 million Indonesians fell into poverty in March compared with September last year as the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on the poor across the country, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) announced on Wednesday.The poverty rate rose to 9.78 percent in March from 9.22 percent in September, BPS reported, as 26.42 million people were living below the poverty line as of March.“The COVID-19 pandemic is taking a great toll on economic activity and adversely affecting people’s livelihoods,” said BPS head Suhariyanto in a virtual press briefing on Wednesday. “This pandemic is hitting the public hard, especially poorer communities.” The job losses translate to losses in income and weaker consumer spending, threatening the country’s economy as more than half of its gross domestic product (GDP) comes from household spending.In line with the rising poverty rate, the Gini ratio, which reflects inequality, rose to 0.381 in March, from 0.380 in September last year, as the gap between the rich and the poor remained high amid the pandemic.According to data from the Finance Ministry, 70 percent of workers with monthly salaries up to Rp 1.8 million lost their income during the pandemic, while only 30 percent of workers with incomes up to Rp 7.2 million lost theirs, as the pandemic took a greater toll on low-income households.The government is allocating a Rp 695.2 trillion stimulus package to prevent greater economic fallout and to cushion the pandemic’s blow on poor communities by strengthening social safety net programs and the country’s healthcare system.Topics : The rise in staple prices played a huge role in the poverty rate, he went on to say, pointing to the rice price as the biggest factor, followed by cigarettes, poultry and instant noodles.The national poverty line is set at Rp 2.1 million (US$145.80) of income per family per month, with the highest poverty rate recorded in Papua with 26.6 percent of the total population and the lowest poverty rate was recorded in Bali (3.78 percent).The pandemic is ravaging the economy as the government expects 4 million people to fall below the poverty line this year, making for a total of 28 million poor in the nation, or around 10.6 percent of the population.Some 5.5 million people may lose their jobs this year, raising the number of total unemployed to 12.7 million people, according to estimates by National Development Planning Minister Suharso Monoarfa recently.last_img read more

Hong Kong police help #HKIndependence trend on Twitter

Posted on by

first_imgChina’s vociferously nationalist state-run tabloid Global Times picked up the same phrasing and tweeted to its 1.8 million followers.Hong Kong’s Twitter warriors were quick to pounce, many of them mocking the city’s police force for helping to make the phrase go viral.They pointed to the irony of police warning on Wednesday that writing online comments about Hong Kong independence could constitute inciting secession. “Oh HK police just created a new hashtag #HKIndependence, hope it doesn’t trend,” wrote one in a tweet, which soon racked up more than 5,000 likes and retweets each. @HongKongHermit, a popular account run by a foreign Hong Kong resident who is frequently caustic towards the city’s police, chipped in.”You do realize that you just created a #HKIndependence hashtag and are causing it to trend?” he wrote.”Congratulations, you just did more to “incite” and “promote secession” than some teens with some leaflets ever did. Let them go or arrest your social media manager.” Beijing imposed its national security law on Hong Kong last month in a bid to restore stability after last year’s huge pro-democracy protests. It targets four types of crime: subversion, secession, terrorism and colluding with foreign forces — with up to life in prison. Overnight certain political views became illegal, such as advocating independence or greater autonomy for Hong Kong. Topics :center_img As China moves to intimidate and punish anyone who voices support for Hong Kong independence, an unlikely source has inadvertently ignited a Twitter trending hashtag advocating just that –- the city’s police force.To the amusement of pro-democracy supporters online, Hong Kong police used #HKIndependence in a tweet on Wednesday night announcing the arrest of four students for online posts deemed a threat to China’s national security.”They were suspected of secession by advocating #HKIndependence. Investigation is underway,” the overnight tweet to the force’s 84,000 followers read.last_img read more

Van Gaal: Possession is key

Posted on by

first_imgLouis van Gaal hit out at his players for almost allowing Roma to break his 100 per cent record as Manchester United manager. Van Gaal made it two wins from two as United boss thanks to a 3-2 win over the Italian giants in the Colorado heat. Unlike in their 7-0 thrashing of the Los Angeles Galaxy, Van Gaal’s men were slow off the mark and Roma wasted numerous opportunities to go ahead. Wayne Rooney scored twice and Juan Mata also got on the score sheet with a stunning goal, but Roma fought back in the second half with two strikes – the first of which came from 60 yards. Van Gaal was annoyed with the way his team failed to close the game out after going 3-0 up, but he thinks the fact that the game took place in 30 degree heat, some 5280 feet above sea level, did not help his players. “I think we don’t play a good match,” Van Gaal said. “All my good passers failed today. I think it was because of the height and the air. “Mata, (Ander) Herrera and (Shinji) Kagawa these are the best passers (at the club), and everything went wrong. “In the second half we forgot to keep the ball. “When you are 3-0 ahead the only thing you have to do is keep the ball in possession and the opponent has to run and run and run. “We forgot to do that. We brought Roma by ourselves back into the match so I am pleased we have won, but it was not good.” Rooney collected the ball from Mata and curled a stunning shot over Lukasz Skorupski from 25 yards to put United ahead. The England striker then returned the favour, firing a 45-yard ball over the Roma defence to Mata, who killed the ball with his first touch before superbly lifting it over Skorupski. A clumsy foul by Mehdi Benatia on Danny Welbeck allowed Rooney to add his second from the penalty spot. Van Gaal was reluctant to single anyone out for praise, but he could not hide his admiration for Rooney’s performance. “The pass of Rooney to Mata was unbelievable,” said Van Gaal, who withdrew the England striker, along with eight others at half-time. Van Gaal was not so happy with Amos for letting in Miralem Pjanic’s 60-yard shot. Pjanic spotted Amos well off his line in the second half and punted a looping shot over the 24-year-old goalkeeper. When asked whether he regarded the goal as a wonder strike by Pjanic or an error on the part of his substitute, Van Gaal said with a smile: “What do you think? “I am nearly 63. When the ball is flying in the air for four seconds, I think I run 50 metres.” Roma coach Rudi Garcia was stunned by the 60-yard effort. “It was a world-class goal,” he said. “I am sure we will see it throughout (the) world. He probably had a training session yesterday with the Denver Broncos.” Van Gaal, meanwhile, played down suggestions that he does not see Wilfried Zaha as part of his first-team plans. Zaha is the only player in Van Gaal’s 26-man squad not to feature in this tour of the USA. But the former Holland boss says he has no issues with the forward, who was loaned to Cardiff last January. “I have a lot of players in (his) position,” Van Gaal added. “Our squad is not balanced. “Maybe Zaha will be picked because he is working good and hard, and is doing all I require and demand. There is no problem (with him).” Van Gaal and his squad fly to Washington DC on Sunday ahead of their next match in the International Champions Cup against Inter Milan, which takes place on Tuesday.
