The ministry also reported 283 more fatalities, bringing the country's coronavirus death toll to 25,767.
Meanwhile, 8,662 more people were discharged from hospitals, taking the total number of recovered patients to 727,358.
The virus has spread to all the country's 34 provinces.
Specifically, within the past 24 hours, Jakarta recorded 3,536 new cases, West Java 3,460, Central Java 1,997, East Java 1,160 and South Sulawesi 659.
No more new positive cases were found in West Sulawesi province.
Meanwhile, Reuters reported that an aftershock jolted Indonesia's Sulawesi island on Saturday as rescue workers combed the rubble of collapsed buildings for survivors after an earthquake killed at least 46 people on Friday and sent thousands of residents fleeing in panic.
The country's disaster mitigation agency said no damage or casualties were reported from Saturday's magnitude-5.0 tremor in the West Sulawesi districts of Mamuju and Majene, which shook the area a day after the magnitude-6.2 quake.
Agency head Doni Monardo told local TV the search continued for people who could still be trapped alive under rubble, and a spokesman told reporters emergency measures had been put in place in the province to help rescue efforts.
More than 820 people were injured and about 15,000 left their homes after the quake, the agency said. Some sought refuge in the mountains, while others went to cramped evacuation centres, witnesses said.
Friday's quake and its aftershocks damaged more than 400 homes and two hotels, as well as flattening a hospital and the office of a regional governor, where authorities told Reuters several people were still trapped.
