Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) cases are still increasing, while the epidemiology data is still limited. This study’s purpose is to delineate characteristics of 31,407 COVID-19 patients in Central Java. This research involved secondary data acquired from the Health Office of Central Java, which was analysed univariately. The majority of the patients were 19-44-year-old (43.57%), females (50.81%), and private employees (10.53%). The most frequent symptoms were fever (18.85%), cough (18.19%), and shortness of breath (13.71%). Most of the cases were from Semarang City (17.2%), Kudus (6%), Jepara (6%), Demak (5.5%), and Kendal (4.3%), with an Incidence Rate (per 10,000) of 42.79; 14.53; 14.99; 14.90; and 13.84 respectively. Furthermore, most of the patients had no transit history (87.11%), while out of 25 of the foreign transit histories, the United States of America and China contributed 24% and 20%, sequentially. Three-fourths of the domestic transit history was in Central Java, whereas the Special Capital Region of Jakarta, South Sulawesi, and East Java shared 9.79%, 5.99%, and 3.08%. The most common transit history in Central Java was in Semarang City (19.28%) and Kudus (13.91%). In conclusion, the characteristics of COVID-19 cases were varied, and local transmission has occurred, which has spread to 35 cities/districts.
