Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta, Ahmad Riza Patria, said that as many as 90 schools in Jakarta closed PTM based on data as of January 22, 2022. PTM was stopped after the findings of COVID-19 cases in students, teachers and education staff.

A total of 90 schools were closed spread across 5 areas of Jakarta, namely West Jakarta 9 schools, Central Jakarta 5 schools, South Jakarta 31 schools, East Jakarta 42 schools, and North Jakarta 3 schools. The schools were closed from kindergarten to high school.

“We agreed to postpone PTM at all levels. Because the number (positive COVID-19) is very high, 45 (students and teachers) in all schools and it is likely that it will continue to spread,” said Bima.

“(Termination of PTM) Until an undetermined time limit, until the spike then slows down again, the vaccine for children has been full (dose 1 and 2) and also (vaccine) boosters have been given to teachers and educators,” he continued.
