JAKARTA, KOMPAS – The COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia has entered a new phase as virus transmissions spread in villages and remote areas, where capacities for testing, tracing and treatment are limited. This concerning situation makes curbing virus transmissions even more difficult. Many new positive cases and deaths go unrecorded.
