The Jakarta administration continues to urge its residents to increase discipline towards 3M's health protocol, as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the capital city, including 3T (testing, tracing, treatment).

" Additional cases today totals 3,395 cases"

Jakarta Health Agency's Disease Prevention and Control Division Head Dwi Oktavia Tatri Lestari stated, additional cases currently occurred in many families and communities.

"We have to comply with 3M, anytime and everywhere. Surely we must work together to suppress the rate of spread," she expressed, as quoted by Jakarta PPID's press release.

She explained, based on the latest data, the swab tests had been carried out on 17,001 specimens. 14,997 of them were to diagnose new cases with 2,559 positive and 12,438 negative results.

"Additional cases today totals 3,395 cases, as 836 cases are the accumulation of data from the previous days, which are newly reported. The number of people tested last week has reached 102,077, while 224,321 people have undergone the swab tests," she explained,

Amid the transitional PSBB, residents wanting to enter the Jakarta area were urged to carry out independent COVID-19 check-up through the JakCLM via JAKI app. In this app, they could find out the risk of COVID-19 and got various health recommendations according to the risks they have. This contribution would help the government to prevent the diseases in Jakarta.

Here are the things that need to be done in daily activities amid the pandemic:

1. Stay home if not urgent

2. Always run 3M rules: (Mencuci tangan (washing hands), Memakai masker (wearing masks) and Menjaga jarak (maintaining physical distancing)

3. All activities permitted to operate must be within a maximum capacity of 50% and strictly adhere to health protocols

4. Remind others to always implement health protocols

As for the information, the community also has the opportunity to donate with others in the large-scale social collaboration (KSBB) program. They can provide aid in the form of staple foods, fast food and cash. For further information, please visit corona.jakarta.go.id/kolaborasi.
