ppkm java and Bali

PPKM in Java and Bali has been extended for two more weeks from 22nd March to 4th April 2022.

The condition of PPKM in Java and Bali this time has improved compared to the previous week because there are no regions with a level 4 status.

PPKM for Java and Bali was extended due to cases of COVID-19 transmission in some areas. The COVID-19 Handling Task Force noted that on Monday, 21st March, there were an additional 4,699 new cases of coronavirus infection. Thus, since the pandemic was announced in March 2020 up to 21st March 2022, there have been 5,967,182 cases of COVID-19 in Indonesia.

Reporting from the official website of the Cabinet Secretariat, Home Affairs Minister Tito Karnavian issued the instruction of the home affairs minister number 18 of 2022 concerning the enforcement of PPKM level 3, level 2, and level 1 in the Java and Bali regions.

Based on this ministerial regulation, there are no regencies or cities in Java or Bali that are under PPKM level 4. Current data shows there are 39 regencies or cities implementing level 3, 83 regencies or cities in level 2, and six regencies or cities in level 1.

Jakarta’s Deputy Governor Ahmad Riza Patria commented that Jakarta should be at level 1. This, he said, was considering the capital’s very high vaccination coverage apart from the daily decreasing number of cases.

I agree (it should have been PPKM level 1), let’s just wait, hopefully, it will be level 1 soon,said Patria to the media crew at the Jakarta City Hall on Tuesday 22nd March.  

However, according to him, the Task Force and the Central Government do not see Jakarta as a single territory. He alluded to Jakarta as part of the agglomeration therefore the capital’s status remains.

“Around Jakarta is also calculated because it cannot be separated from Depok, Bogor, Tangerang, Bekasi,” he said.
