The decrease of number might due to self test. Just ask urself if u found out positive during ur self test, will u go report it? Most will just do self quarantine.

☢️5434☢️ Indonesia reported 747 cases yesterday! Backdoor Government 2.0 must continue decrease the numbers on the paper. Or else 💯 days arrived, KJ and dumno lose face lo... Singapore opened to visitors from Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States without quarantine required. Why Singapore don't do the same to Malaysia and Indonesia? 😷😷😷
