Ministry of Health, Tuesday (01/15), announced an update on PeduliLindungi surveillance app. A black color-coded indicator for a person tested positive for COVID-19 will change into the initial color after isolation.

“For those confirmed positive for COVID-19, the black color-coded indicator will return to its initial color after having negative results from two PCR tests on the sixth and seventh days of COVID-19 infection with 1-day interval from one test to another. If they don’t take a PCR test, the black color-coded indicator will change on the tenth day of infection,” Expert Staff to the Minister of Health, Setiaji, said on Tuesday (02/15).

The first day of infection will be the day when they receive the result of lab test stating that they have tested positive for COVID-19. For instance, the timeline is as follow:

February 1st, tested positive for COVID-19 based on the results of Antigen/PCR test. The D-day.

February 2nd, the second day of infection.

February 3rd, the third day of infection.

February 4th, the fourth day of infection.

February 5th, the fifth day of infection.

February 6th, the sixth day of infection- take the first PCR test.

February 7th, the seventh day of infection- take the second PCR test.

They must take PCR tests on the sixth and seventh day. An antigen test will be invalid. If both PCR tests show negative results, the black color-coded indicator will return to the initial color.

If they do not take PCR tests or the tests show positive results, they must undergo self-isolation for at least 10 days. The black color-coded indicator will return to the initial color at the 11th day of infection, as follows:

February 8th, the eighth day of infection.

February 9th, the ninth day of infection.

February 10th, the tenth day of infection.

February 11th, the eleventh day of infection, the last day of self-isolation.
