Is PPKM extended again or not? If so, how long has the PPKM been extended?

Jakarta is out of the red zone

Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta Ahmad Riza Patria said the condition of the Covid-19 pandemic in Jakarta had improved. In fact, he stated that currently Jakarta was out of the COVID-19 red zone.

Riza’s statement refers to official data from the official website of the national Covid-19 Task Force (covid19.go.id).

“Thank God, we’re out of the COVID-19 red zone,” said Riza at DKI Jakarta City Hall, Friday (13/8/2021) yesterday.

However, Riza said in detail not all areas in Jakarta have become completely green zones. As of now, there are still seven red zone RTs.
“There are only seven RTs that are red, the rest are orange 349, and the green are 24,011 RTs,” he explained.

Therefore, Riza asked the public to continue to comply with health protocols. He didn’t want the red zone to spread again because of the residents’ disobedience.

“Hopefully we will continue to increase it, so that COVID-19 cases can continue to decline,” he concluded.

Governor of DKI Jakarta Anies Baswedan speaks up related to the possibility of Jakarta’s status being downgraded to PPKM level 3. Until now, Jakarta is still under PPKM Level 4.

It is known, DKI Jakarta Province has moved out of the red zone or high risk from the spread of COVID-19. There are only seven red zone RTs in Jakarta.

Regarding the possibility of PPKM Level 3 Jakarta, Anies said that the status cannot be determined only based on public requests. Must refer to a number of criteria that have benchmarks.

“So this is all there is already a size, there are parameters, then in those parameters there are criteria that can be used. So we just refer to that,” said Anies in Jakarta, Saturday (14/8/2021).

It is clear that the criteria refer to several things such as hospital occupancy rate, positivity rate and community mobility.

“So we work using benchmarks and benchmarks that were set yesterday, we referred to them. I think everyone can judge, so it’s not a question of request, not a request, but that criteria are used,” said Anies.

“So this can be a reference for all regions as well, that the determination of the level of activity is based on a measure that is consistently implemented,” he continued.

The number of positive cases of the Covid-19 corona virus in Indonesia continues to increase. As of Sunday (15/8/2021), a total of 3,854,345 people have tested positive for Covid-19.

This is known based on data from the Covid-19 Handling Task Force compiled by Suara.com through the covid19.go.id page this Sunday afternoon.

Based on this data, there were 20,813 new positive confirmed cases from the previous number.

Meanwhile, the number of active cases to date is recorded at 384,807. There was a decrease of 10,770 cases from the previous day’s data.

The number of patients who were declared cured or negative from Covid-19 also increased by 30,361 people. So there are 3,351,959 people who have been declared cured.
The number of cases of death due to Covid-19 also increased again by 1,222 people. In total, 117,588 people have died from Covid-19.

Last week, the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said that PPKM levels 2-4 were extended until August 16, 2021. So tomorrow Monday is the last day of PPKM in this period.

“Under the direction of the President, PPKM 4.3,2 will be extended until August 16, 2021,” said Luhut in a live broadcast broadcast via the Presidential Secretariat’s YouTube, Monday (9/8/2021).

Meanwhile, PPKM after August 16, 2021 is still waiting for an official decision from the government, whether PPKM is extended or not.
