What's Fuelling the Rise in Indonesia's Covid-19 Cases?

June 18, 2020, 10.45 PM

“The number of increasing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is hand in hand with a decrease in positive cases,” said Tonang.

“The percentage of positive cases are currently 11.5 percent. Ideally, more PCR tests will show the rate of positive go down to five percent or less,” he noted.

“However if the PCR rate and the number of cases increased, it shows that there are more cases than we realized.”

4. Flouting the rules

Most of all, Tonang attributed the increase in Covid-19 in Indonesia to public disregard for heath protocols. “Public disobedience [of health protocols] can be attributed to insufficient efforts at orienting them to the new rules,” he said.

Tonang urged the government to refrain from cracking down. “Society is diverse, so they have different levels of understanding and awareness.”

“If the government does not act without a clear guidelines, their drive to raise awareness will also come up short.”
