"The number was down from 176 thousand to 161 thousand in the past week," the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) chairman told a coordination meeting.
According to the official, the decrease was also influenced by the implementation of community activity restrictions (PPKM) in the islands of Java and Bali.
"We hope that we can continue to minimize the number of cases," Doni stated.
