Jakarta (ANTARA) - The imposition of public activity restrictions (PPKM) outside Java-Bali has again been extended from October 5-18, 2021, with six districts/cities continuing to apply Level 4 restrictions,  Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto said.

 

"Previously, there were ten districts/cities at Level 4, (now) there are six districts/cities at Level 4," Hartarto, who is also chairman of the COVID-19 Handling and National Economic Recovery Committee (KPC-PEN), informed at an online press conference on PPKM  here on Monday.

 

The six districts/cities that are still applying Level 4 PPKM are Pidi, Bangka, Padang, Banjarmasin, Bulungan, and Tarakan, he informed.

 

These six districts/cities have still not met the requirements for their PPKM levels to be lowered because of inadequate testing or an increase in positivity rate, he said.

However, there have been COVID-19 control improvements in other districts/cities outside Java-Bali, so Level 3 PPKM outside Java-Bali is currently being applied in 44 districts/cities compared to 108 earlier, the minister informed.

 

Meanwhile, 292 districts/cities are imposing Level 2 from 249 earlier, and 44 districts/cities are imposing Level 1 PPKM, he said.

 

"Related to the restriction types of community activities for the October 5-18 period, they will remain the same as the previous PPKM. The face-to-face learning will follow the Education Minister's direction," he explained.
