Jakarta (ANTARA) - PeduliLindungi's QR Codes have been integrated with several applications to make them easy to use and to support the tracking of COVID-19 spread and monitoring of health protocols, Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin has said.

Currently, 15 applications have been integrated into the PeduliLindungi digital ecosystem, including Bank Mandiri, BNI, Link Aja, Jaki, Grab, Gojek, besides 35 other partners who are processing PeduliLindungi QR Codes in their services.

"Hopefully this cooperation can build a better health infrastructure in Indonesia in the future," Sadikin said at a virtual press conference on the launch of the PeduliLindungi QR Code Integration here on Thursday.

"I am here to thank the partners for being able to reach all Indonesian people. We know that we cannot work alone, must be together," he added.

Chair of the Digital Transformation Office of the Health Ministry, Setiaji, assured that user data will remain secure following the integration of PeduliLindungi features with partner applications.

The data accessed by partners will be encrypted data sent in the form of tokens, he explained.

According to him, partners in the PeduliLindungi application can only access users' status data when they enter public spaces, and the data is not stored by the partner applications.

"We do not keep personal data like (the user's) location, and information about the security of data protection is also contained in the terms and conditions on each digital partner platform," he added.

The PeduliLindungi application has been installed in public spaces such as malls, restaurants, supermarkets, entertainment venues, offices, and other public spaces and all visitors to these areas need to use it to gain entry.

Visitors can scan or check-in through the QR code available at the public space before entering.

The application is also a tool for monitoring visitors' health and vaccination status for supporting the control of the COVID-19 pandemic.
