TRIBUNBATAM.id - Spokesperson for the Covid-19 Handling Task Force, Wiku Adisasmito, said the current Covid-19 situation was nearing the peak of the pandemic after the holiday period at the end of 2020.
This was conveyed in a written press release by the Covid-19 Task Force on Thursday (6/24/2021).
"The current Covid-19 situation is nearing the peak of the pandemic post-holiday period late last year. Currently active cases have reached 160,524 cases, while the highest active case (previously) was 176,672 on February 5, 2021," said Wiku.
He said, this week, the development of positive cases of Covid-19 nationally experienced a very significant increase of 42 percent.
This increase has been going on for five weeks in a row, the majority coming from the provinces on the island of Java.
"The addition has doubled compared to last week," said Wiku.
Currently, there are five provinces in Java that contributed to the increase in positive cases of Covid-19, namely DKI Jakarta which increased by 13,022 cases, West Java which rose by 6,449 cases, East Java rose by 1,756 cases, DIY rose by 1,322 cases, and Java Central which rose by 1,012 cases.
In line with the increase in positive cases, deaths in these five provinces also became the highest this week.
"Only DIY hasn't experienced a sharp increase in the death rate, so it doesn't enter the top five," said Wiku.
The five provinces that recorded the highest increase in deaths were DKI Jakarta which rose by 200 cases, Central Java which rose by 96 cases, East Java which rose by 79 cases, West Java which rose by 73 cases, and Lampung which rose by 72 cases.
