TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta provincial administration reported that a total of 27 community units (RW) are classified as the Covid-19 red zones.

The city’s secretariat head Premi Lasari said her side put the areas under the second phase of the local-scale social restrictions or PKBL. 

“At present, there are 27 RW areas that are vulnerable [to the virus transmission],” said Premi in a virtual discussion on Thursday, June 25.

Premi mentioned that the 27 RW consist of 22 new RW and 5 old RW. By means, she opined, there were shifts in the red zone areas to 22 new RW. Previously, Jakarta noted 66 RW as red zones, which are now dropped to 5 RW.

However, she stopped short of detailing the 27 RW. The second-phase PKBL kicked off from June 19 until July 2, 2020. Meanwhile, the first phase occurred on June 4-18.

In the session, Premi called on participants, who are residents of Jakarta, to help the government in combating the novel coronavirus transmission in the second-phase of PKBL together. The government, she added, expected public collaboration to carry out action plans in the red zones.

“So I ask all people to [help the government] in turning the 27 Covid-19 red zones into yellow or green areas,” the city’s secretariat head said.
