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.

From that amount, 13,443 specimens have been tested today to diagnose new cases with total of 2,455 positive results and 10,988 negative results. Besides, Antigen test was also conducted to 5,489 people with 310 positive results and 5,179 negative results.

"WHO test target is 1,000 people tested using PCR per one million population per week (not specimens), meaning that WHO target for Jakarta is at least 10,645 people should be tested per week. This target has been exceeded by Jakarta for some time. In the past week, 71,616 people were tested using PCR. While the number of people tested for PCR in Jakarta has now reached 385,590 per million population," she explained as quoted in Jakarta PPID Press Release.

Moreover, for total confirmed cases in Jakarta as of today reached 445,302 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.
