During the week of July 12 to 18, 32 provinces out of 34 reported an increase in the number of cases as 17 of them experienced a worrying increase of 50% or more; 21 provinces (8 new provinces added since the previous week) have now reported the Delta variant, and the test positivity proportion is over 20% in 33 of 34 provinces despite their efforts to improve testing rates. Indonesia is currently facing a very high level of transmission, and it is indicative of the utmost importance of rigorous implementation of public health and social measures (PHSM), especially restrictions on movement, across the country.
These figures are far from reality! Because they only take into account people who have been tested. And here the tests are paying for everyone. So … Few people get tested!
