“During the 2023 Eid homecoming, cases of COVID-19 have increased again. Therefore we still need to be vigilant because usually when traveling, our immune system tends to decrease due to tiring homecoming activities. This condition makes our body very vulnerable to viruses, especially COVID-19,” said Mr. Maret.
Maintaining Immunity in the Midst of Rising Cases of COVID-19
In the midst of the 2023 Eid Homecoming, there has been an increase in COVID-19 cases in Indonesia. Therefore, travelers are encouraged to implement health protocols to prevent transmission even though the social movement restriction policy has been revoked by the government.
“As the first phytopharmaca immunomodulator product in Indonesia that has been clinically tested, STIMUNO is trusted to maintain Indonesian families’ immune system. The immunomodulator developed from the green meniran plant can increase both specific and non-specific immunity, thereby helping to maintain our immune system when we travel. STIMUNO is also convenient when traveling because it is available in liquid form in stick packs or sachets for both adults and children apart from capsule and syrup formats. It also tastes good with our grape mint for the forte and orange berries variants for the children,” said Mr. Maret.
OMAI is also included in the COVID-19 Guidelines as one of the therapies for patients. The guidelines were compiled by 5 medical organizations, the Indonesian Pulmonary Doctors Association (PDPI), the Indonesian Association of Cardiovascular Specialists (PERKI), the Indonesian Association of Internal Medicine Specialists (PAPDI), the Indonesian Association of Anesthesiologists and Intensive Therapy (PERDATIN), and the Indonesian Association of Pediatricians. (IDAI).
“We hope with this event that people can travel to their hometowns without worrying about getting sick as long as they also implement health protocols. In addition, we also hope that the public will not hesitate to consume medicinal products in the form of syrup, especially those produced by Dexa Medica because as a leading pharmaceutical research company that complies with regulations, we always ensure that our medicinal products, including syrups, are safe, high quality and have gone through a series of rigorous processes to guarantee product quality and safety,” said Mr. Maret.
