Indonesia has seen around 1,000 fresh coronavirus infections in a single day throughout this week, and epidemiologists warn that the trend may continue until at least the end of June. AsiaNewsNetwork

University of Indonesia epidemiologist Pandu Riono attributed the considerable increase in daily cases to the ineffective ban on the massive exodus to home towns ahead of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, which fell on May 24 this year.

He noted that the relaxation of social restrictions in many parts of the country will also drive the surge in infections in the coming weeks. Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said the city reached its peak of infections in April. But after posting a low number of cases in late May, the city of around 10 million people reported a rebound of infections recently.

According to the Indonesian government, the total number of tests nationwide to date is 495,527, out of a population of about 270 million. He added: “What we want to see is that with the increased testing and contact tracing, the number of cases declines.”
