Since the end of March 2021, Indonesia have recorded a notable decrease in COVID-19 red zones across the country.
But the number of high-risk areas have doubled again since five regions in Bali accounting for half the total the case.
As cited from Kompas, as of April 11, 2021, there are 10 regencies and cities in Indonesia that are deemed as having the highest risk of COVID-19 transmission:
- Badung (Bali)
- Gianyar (Bali)
- Buleleng (Bali)
- Tabanan (Bali)
- Denpasar (Bali)
- North Sumatra
- South Sumatra
- Central Kalimantan
- South Kalimantan
There are four zones that categorize COVID-19 risks across its 314 regencies and cities in the Southeast Asian countries, identified as 1. Red (high-risk)
- Orange (medium-risk)
- Yellow (low-risk)
- Green (zero cases)
“This latest development must be followed with consistency and control of COVID-19, whether it’s in the implementation of health protocols or anticipatory policies, as well as behavioral change in regions,”
Indonesia’s COVID-19 task force spokesman, Wiku Adisasmito, said during a virtual discussion yesterday.
