- The Indonesian government has decided to revoke the policy of imposing restrictions on social activities (PPKM).

The policy was announced by Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) on Friday (30/12/2022) at the State Palace in Jakarta, accompanied by Minister of Health Budi Gunadi Sadikin and Minister of Home Affairs Tito Karnavian.

"Today the government has decided to revoke the PPKM set out in the Ministry of Home Affairs Instructions Nos. 50 and 51 of 2022. So, there are no more restrictions on gatherings and movement of the public," the President said.

The President emphasized that the decision was made after a long consideration and study, taking into account the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the country.

"Alhamdulillah, Indonesia is one of the countries that has successfully controlled the COVID-19 pandemic and at the same time maintained its economic stability. The policy of balancing health and economic management has been the key to our success," he said.

The President further explained that in recent months, the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia has been more controlled. As of December 27, 2022, there were 1.7 daily cases per 1 million population, a weekly positivity rate of 3.35%, a hospital treatment rate or bed occupancy rate (BOR) of 4.79%, and a mortality rate of 2.39%.

"All of these are below the WHO standards. And all districts/cities in Indonesia are currently at PPKM Level 1, where the restrictions on gatherings and movement are low," he added.

The President added that Indonesia is one of four G20 countries that has not experienced a pandemic wave for 10 consecutive months, after reaching the peak of the wave with 56,000 daily cases in July.
