Some of These Areas Go to Level 3, Which Areas?


The government has again extended PPKM levels 4, 3, and 2 until August 30 for the Java-Bali region. While areas outside Java-Bali until September 6.

Although the PPKM extension was carried out, the government made a number of easing gradually.

“The government has decided that from August 24 to August 30, 2021, some regions can be lowered from level 4 to level 3,” Jokowi said via the Presidential Secretariat’s YouTube show.

The decline in Covid-19 in a number of areas in Java-Bali caused the government to lower the status from level 4 to level 3.

As for several areas in Java-Bali, which fell to level 3, among others, the agglomeration of Jabodetabek, Greater Surabaya, and Greater Bandung.

Previously, there were 67 regencies/cities with level 4 status, now there are only 51 regencies/cities. In other words, as many as 16 regencies/cities experienced a decrease in level. Meanwhile, for level 2, the two districts/cities have now become ten districts/cities.

This condition forced the government to make gradual adjustments to the restrictions imposed.

Shopping centers/malls are allowed to operate until 8 PM with a maximum capacity of 50 percent. Not only that, strict implementation of health protocols is still enforced and further regulated by local governments.
