"There are districts that have also increased from level 3 to level 4, namely Wonosobo district, Temanggung district and Batang district," she added.

Jodi Mahardi, spokesperson for the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, said the COVID-19 alert levels from 1 to 4 are decided based on the addition of confirmed cases per 100 thousand inhabitants per week. This is to measure the transmission rate of COVID-19, he explained.

The alert level system is also decided based on the number of inpatients per 100,000 residents every week. The higher the number, the higher the level set in that area, he added.
