In addition, areas that enter the orange zone or the moderate risk of the coronavirus also increase.
"It is very unfortunate that this week there is another red zone and an orange zone, which we should always strive to reduce the spread of Covid-19," Wiku said in a press conference broadcast by the Presidential Secretariat YouTube, Tuesday (27/4/2021).

The majority of regencies / cities are from the provinces of Aceh, West Sumatra, Riau, Jambi, North Sumatra, South Sumatra, Bangka Belitung Islands, Bali and South Kalimantan.
