The PPKM was implemented to replace large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) during the Corona or Covid-19 pandemic.

PPKM is enforced at a number of levels, from level 1 to level 4.

The higher the PPKM level in an area means the stricter the restrictions that apply.

In the last few days, the government has also implemented level 1 PPKM throughout the country since the Covid-19 case began to decline.
