Yurianto also explained that Indonesia will be improving its test rate and is targeting to do about 10,000 tests per day. He said,

“The president (Mr Joko Widodo) has instructed for testing to be conducted more massively and contact tracing done more aggressively. Today, Indonesia has the capacity to test 17,900 samples (per day). We will continue to increase the capacity.”
