Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto Monday (12/06) has announced that daily confirmed cases and the number of active cases in Indonesia continue to decline consistently.

“The reproduction rate is below one in all regions (in the country),” Airlangga said in a press statement after attending the limited cabinet meeting on evaluation of public activity restrictions (PPKM) at the Presidential Palace, Jakarta.

According to Airlangga, as of December 5, there were 7,526 active cases or 0.18 percent of the total cases and the number of cases is below the global average (7.91 percent). Meanwhile, daily confirmed cases as of December 5 were 196 cases and an average of 7 days (7DMA) was 250 cases.

In addition, based on spatial data outside Java-Bali, the recovery rate in Sumatra reached 96.20 percent with a case fatality rate of 3.58 percent, while in Nusa Tenggara the recovery rate reached 97.46 percent with fatality rate of 2.35 percent, Kalimantan with recovery rate of 96.79 percent and fatality rate of 3.17 percent, Sulawesi with recovery rate of 97.27 percent and fatality rate of 2.64 percent, and Maluku and Papua with recovery rate of 95.89 percent and fatality rate of 1.75 percent.

Nevertheless, to ensure there will be no spike in cases in the future, the Government has decided to extend the implementation of PPKM outside Java and Bali for two weeks “Starting from December 7 to 23, 2021,” the Minister said.

The Government, Airlangga continued, listed pandemic situation assessment and vaccination rate as a parameter for determining the levels of PPKM in the regencies/cities outside Java and Bali. Regions with the first dose of vaccination below 50 percent increased by 1 level of PPKM.

He further detailed that as many as 386 regencies/cities outside Java and Bali, 129 regencies/cities are at Level 1, (previously 51 regencies/cities); 193 regencies/cities are at Level 2 (previously 175 regencies/cities), 64 regencies/cities are at Level 3 (previously 160 regencies/cities) and no regencies/cities at Level 4.
