Sulsel Has Not Had A New Case Since Yesterday
Furthermore, Yurianto mentioned the sharp increase in cases that occurred in the regions. In particular, areas with sufficiently large inspection gaps will experience an increase in cases quickly.He gave an example of South Sulawesi Province which yesterday recorded an increase in daily cases high enough to reach 91 people. This happens because the examination of the specimen can be done on site using a TCM machine so that it does not need to be sent to Makassar.”Now it can be checked by itself so now there are no additions because everything was checked yesterday,” he said.
