Gov’t Extends Micro-Scale Restrictions as Covid-19 2nd Wave Is Imminent

Jakarta. The government has extended micro-scale restrictions on community activities, known as PPKM Mikro, until June 28 across Indonesia in an attempt to stem the spread of the Covid-19 spread following a dramatic spike in weeks after the Idul Fitri holiday due to people dropping health protocol and the arrival of more infectious coronavirus variant. 

“The PPKM Mikro will be extended from 15 to 28 June 2021, considering the risk zoning in every region,” the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto said in a statement late on Sunday. 

The government began the biweekly micro-scale restrictions in Jakarta at urban hamlets or village levels instead of entire cities or provinces in January to balance pandemic mitigation and economic recovery.
