JAKARTA - The development of the risk zonation map as of April 11, 2021, shows an increase in the red zone or high risk. From 10 to 11 districts / cities. The orange zone or moderate risk has also increased, from 289 to 316 districts / cities. Meanwhile, the yellow zone or low risk decreased from 207 to 178 districts / cities. Green zone with no cases 8 districts / cities and 1 district / city not affected.

Spokesperson of The COVID-19 Task Force asked all parties to improve the quality of Pandemic management. Because the increase in the number of red zone areas has occurred in 2 consecutive weeks. While the orange zone is seen increasing this week. This increase occurred because the orange zone moved to the red zone, while the yellow zone moved to the orange zone.

"This development is not good and should also be used as a warning. Although the majority of areas are in the orange zone and the yellow zone, so I need to emphasize that this condition is dynamic," he said in an International Media Briefing, Tuesday (13/4/2021) at Graha BNPB, broadcast on the YouTube channel BNPB Indonesia.

In addition to the efforts made by the government, the development of COVID-19 in Indonesia also depends on people's behavior in implementing behavior change. The development of COVID-19 is dynamic, so cooperation between both side is needed in order to produce development in a good direction.

Because in principle, positive developments in handling must be followed by consistent efforts to control the COVID-19 pandemic. By tightening the discipline of health protocols and issuing policies that anticipate and deal with negative developments by evaluating behavior change programs and policies implemented.
