PPKM by province and COVID-19 Update and Guidelines

Based on data as of November 1, 2021, the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Indonesia is currently 4,244,761 with 4,089,419 declared cured, while the number of patients who died is 143,423.

The Covid distribution curve also shows a sloping curve with an average daily Covid-19 positive case of less than 1,000. This figure has been much reduced from the peak of the highest cases in mid-July which reached above 50 thousand.

This means that the Covid-19 pandemic in the country is quite under control. Even Indonesia had received an appreciation as one of the countries with the best pandemic control based on data from Johns Hopkins University CSSE Covid-19 on September 12, 2021. Currently, Indonesia's position in the eyes of the world in handling the COVID-19 pandemic is ranked 13th, based on Worldometers data,

Progress in handling the pandemic cannot be separated from the government's efforts. One of them is urging the public to vaccinate. The government provides free vaccinations through health facilities and other agencies.

As of November 1, 2021, there were 120,052,587 (57.59%) people who had received the first dose of vaccination and 74,088,927 people (35.51%) had received the second dose of vaccination. The region with the best percentage of vaccines is DKI Jakarta, followed by Bali, Riau Islands, and the Special Region of Yogyakarta.

PPKM Level Determination Indicator

In addition to continuing to intensify vaccinations for the general public, the government has also implemented PPKM throughout Indonesia with level 1-4 categories. The determination of levels 1-4 is based on the zoning status of the region, the criteria set by the Ministry of Health, and the achievement of vaccination in the region.

The regional zoning based on the indicator reference from WHO is as follows:

  • The Green Zone is characterized by less than 1 case per 100,000 people.
  • Yellow Zone 1-9 cases per 100,000 people.
  • Orange Zone 10-24 cases per 100,000 people.
  • The Red Zone is more than 25 cases per 100,000 people.
