Statement of the President of the Republic of Indonesia on the Impact of Activity Restrictions Policy (PPKM) on Bed Occupancy Rate (BOR), 15 August 2021
Thank God the current BOR [Bed Occupancy Rate] in Jakarta is about 29.4 percent, in West Java 32 percent, in Central Java 38.3 percent, in East Java 52.3 percent, in Banten 33.4 percent and in Yogyakarta 54.7 percent. In the meantime, the BOR at Wisma Atlet also decreased to 19.64 percent. At the national level, our national BOR is 48.14 percent.
To that end, I demand that daily vaccination should continue to be accelerated. Nowadays, our daily vaccination has reached 1.6 million [doses] per day. I also demand the acceleration of centralized isolation measures. This is important. Testing and tracing measures should also be improved.
Last week, the numbers of our testing measures were between 130,000 and 140,000 and our tracing indicator was between 5 and 7. Even though the number belongs to the medium category, I should appreciate it because there was a progress. We must increase testing measures so that we can trace those who get infected and we can handle them immediately to prevent transmission to other people. (RI/LW)
