JAKARTA - The government has decided to extend the implementation of Level 4 Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) until August 2.

The decision for the extension was conveyed by President Joko Widodo after PPKM Level 4 ended on Sunday.

"I have decided to continue implementing PPKM Level 4 from July 26 to August 2, 2021", said Jokowi in a video description posted on the Presidential Secretariat's YouTube, Sunday, July 25.

This decision was taken after considering aspects of health, economy, and dynamics in the community.

In addition, Jokowi also mentioned that there had been a trend of improving the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. This can be seen from the decrease in the number of positive cases, the bed occupancy rate (BOR), to the positivity rate.

Even so, he reminded all parties to remain careful in responding to the trend of improvement that occurred.

"We must remain cautious in responding to this downward trend. We must remain vigilant against the highly contagious Delta variant", he concluded.
