JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Spokesperson for the Covid-19 Handling Task Force Wiku Adisasmito said, the active case of Covid-19 has experienced a decline.
However, his party also acknowledged that there was still pending Covid-19 data recording (delay).
“In principle, active case data has indeed begun to decline, as we always say. The condition has indeed decreased. It is like that,” Wiku told reporters at Graha BNPB, Friday (5/3/2021).
“The data delay it is still there, but with improvements, the problem in the future will be reduced, “he said.
Wiku said that the delayed data recording was due to various factors, one of which was that the data entered was incomplete, which required time to be verified.
As for the length of time the delay in data recording occurred, it varied.
“Some of them are short or just. Some are happening during the week,” he said.
Previously, President Joko Widodo said, the percentage of active cases of Covid-19 in Indonesia as of March 3, 2021 was 11.11 percent.
Meanwhile, the percentage of active cases of Covid-19 in the world was 18.85 percent.
“This means that our active cases are lower than the world average. However, once again we must remain vigilant,” said Jokowi in a virtual press statement via the Presidential Secretariat YouTube, Thursday (4/3/2021) night.
In addition, the decline in the addition of positive cases of Covid-19 in the past week also shows an improving trend.
“In January 2021, it has reached 14,000 cases to 15,000 cases per day.
And this past week, namely February 22, there were 10,180 cases and on March 3 there were 6,818 cases, “said Jokowi.
Then, Indonesia’s Covid-19 cure rate as of March 3, 2021 was 86.18 percent.
Meanwhile, the world Covid-19 cure rate was 78.93 percent.
This means, said Jokowi, that the recovery rate from Covid-19 in Indonesia is higher than the world average
Then, the death rate due to Covid-19 in Indonesia as of March 3, 2021 was 2.7 percent.
Jokowi said that this figure still exceeded the world’s death rate of 2.22 percent.
“Now this is what we must pay attention to and we must work hard so that the death rate in Indonesia can be below the world death rate,” he said.
