WHO urges Indonesia to implement stricter, wider COVID-19 lockdown

The WHO said that indicates a "very high" transmissibility. It has called for urgent action to stop the spread from spiralling out of control.

Despite this, the government indicated it was considering easing restrictions just days ago.
