The comparison of cases between women and men shows that the prevalence of the virus is quite balanced, although 60 percent of deaths are of men. All age groups are affected by the disease, with the number of deaths dominated by those aged 46 years and over.

In early June 2020, the Government of Indonesia begun the transition phase to “Adaptation to the New Behavior for productive and safe communities against COVID-19 disease”. A set of protocol has been enacted to enforce requirements regarding pre-conditions, timings, priorities, national-regional coordination as well as monitoring and evaluation. The re-opening of activities in the regions is being made in stages, starting with the ones categorized as green and yellow zones. The zoning is constantly monitored and updated weekly by the Task Force for the Acceleration of COVID-19 Response, according to guidelines and parameters from WHO.
On mid-June, the Indonesian Ministry of Health (MoH) issued a set of health protocols governing activities in public places, including department stores, hotels, airports, restaurants, places of worship and tourist sites. The protocols contain essential measures that people need to implement while in public places. On the fourth week of June, the Government decided to reopen certain tourism sites.
