Previously, national COVID-19 mitigation task force head Achmad Yurianto announced that the total confirmed cases in Indonesia increased to 25,216 cases with an additional 678 new cases today. Despite the large number of cases, Achmad maintained that the number was not equal in every province, and that some provinces had even reported zero positive cases.
Achmad Yurianto also explained the additional 125 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Jakarta were mainly attributable to migrant workers that had returned to Indonesia. He asserted this did not portray the actual condition of the city’s pandemic.
