SITUATION UPDATE

Indonesia is facing another wave of COVID-19 cases due to the spread of Omicron variant. As of February 24, 2022, the increasing number of positive COVID-19 cases reached 57,426 cases per day. The Government is continuing the vaccine booster program to achieve herd immunity in the midst of increasing number of positive cases.

Most COVID-19 cases in Indonesia are transmitted locally. Residents have been aware of using the mask and maintaining their hygiene during outside activity. Meanwhile, the Government has announced level 3 of community movement restriction to slow down the virus transmission in some Provinces that have higher transmission rate.
