People in Bali and most regions in Indonesia were expecting good news regarding the implementation of Partial Lockdown, so-called PPKM Level 4. The latest extension (the fifth) of this social restriction was finished yesterday, 23 August 2021.
Though situations have gotten much better for the last two weeks, which can be seen through the significant decrease in daily cases and bed occupancy rates (BOR) of most hospitals in Bali. The central government still decided to categorise Bali as the Level-4 area along with Yogyakarta, Malang and Solo.
“The agglomeration areas like Bali, Malang, Solo, and Yogyakarta are still at level 4, but we expect them to drop to Level 3 in the next few weeks,” said Luhut in an online press conference on Monday night, 23 August 2021. All measurements remain the same as the previous extension.
Most regions classified as level 4 have now decreased their status to level 3 due to improvements in mitigating the spread of Covid-19. There were 67 regencies, and cities are now categorised as Level 3. The government also lowered the PPKM status of 10 regions from level 3 to level 2.
