Jakarta Government continues to control COVID-19 pandemic. Not only implementing 3T, COVID-19 vaccination is also being promoted to priority groups. However, community participation is still needed to remain disciplined in implementing health protocols.
" Number of people tested for PCR in the past week reached 63,716"
Given that COVID-19 vaccination can only reduce the impact of exposure, there is still a possibility of COVID-19 transmission if people don't follow health protocols. It can be seen from positive cases that are still fluctuating and now tend to increase. It needs cooperation from all sides to break the transmission chain.
Jakarta Health Agency's Disease Prevention and Control Division Head, Dwi Oktavia stated, based on the latest data from Jakarta Health Agency, PCR test has been carried out to 15,307 specimens. From that amount, 11,480 specimens have been tested today to diagnose new cases with total of 905 positive results and 10,575 negative results. Besides, Antigen test was also conducted to 3,844 people with 75 positive results and 3,769 negative results.
"For information, 355,186 PCR tests have been carried out per 1 million population. While the number of people tested for PCR in the past week reached 63,716.

Meanwhile for total confirmed cases in Jakarta as of today reached 413,323 cases. It should be noted that positive antigen test results in Jakarta were not included in total positive cases because all were reconfirmed by PCR.
