Abstract

Covid19.go.id data as of September 2nd, 2020 shows that in the Eastern Indonesia Area (EIA), including ten provinces. This increase indicates that the more tracing, testing, and treatment areas, the more case finding increases. Some areas need to be watched out because they experience a false sense of security. This study aims to determine the Covid19 effect on economic growth and employment in the Eastern Indonesia Area that began to be felt in the second quarter of 2020. This paper uses a comparative analysis technique. Relative analysis techniques among provinces in EIA allow this paper to compare the Covid19 effect on economic growth and employment in ten areas in EIA and dissect each region's strategies in overcoming Covid19 transmission and prevention. Comparative techniques are also useful for comparing key factors that can promote and accelerate economic recovery before, during, and after the Covid-19 pandemic.
