In the latest regulation, the government still allows malls to remain open until 22.00 p.m.

A number of community activities, previously opened to 100 percent capacity when Level 1 PPKM was now reduced to a maximum of 75 percent due to the increase in positive cases of COVID-19.

Restaurants or restaurants are also required to apply 75 percent of visitor capacity. Likewise, the capacity in food stalls / street vendors.

While public transportation is still allowed to carry passengers up to 100 percent.

Based on data from the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government (Pemprov), since the last few days active cases of COVID-19 being treated and isolated have shown an increase. However, since early July, this increase has been accompanied by a decrease in active cases.

Meanwhile, the number of daily positive cases increased to 931 cases and the number of recovered patients increased to 1.213 patients.

The number of people tested by PCR-based swabs reached 68.706 people over the past week with an average percentage of positive cases reaching 10.9 percent.

The increase in positive cases of COVID-19 was obtained because the number of people being tested was also higher than the World Health Organization (WHO) standard of 10.645 people per week.
