"The corpses are starting to smell and we believe some people buried are still alive - that's why it's a critical time", Nugroho said.
The governor of the province that includes Lombok where the quake was centred, the military, the national search and rescue agency and regent of North Lombok all issued different death tolls for Sunday's natural disaster that ranged from 226 to 381.
"There are still some evacuees that have not yet been touched by aid, especially in North Lombok and West Lombok", Nugroho tweeted Thursday.
Evacuees in some encampments say they are running out of food, while others are suffering psychological trauma after the 6.9-magnitude quake, which struck just one week after another tremor surged through the island and killed 17.
The death toll from the Lombok quake has risen dramatically to 347, the government-run news agency Antara has said.
Many people used the word "selamat" - meaning "to survive" - as they wrote about the magnitude 7.0 quake, which, CBS reports, killed at least 131 people.

A strong aftershock struck Indonesia's Lombok on Thursday, causing panic among evacuees sheltering after a devastating quake killed more than 160 on the holiday island four days earlier.
Local authorities, worldwide relief groups and the central government have begun organising aid, but shattered roads have slowed efforts to reach survivors in the mountainous north of Lombok, which bore the brunt of the quake. "Where should we go if we have no house anymore, nowhere to live?" said the mother of 15- and 9-year-old girls.
Authorities said all the tourists who wanted to be evacuated from three outlying vacation islands due to power blackouts and damage to hotels had left by boat, some 5,000 people in all.
With hospitals and clinics also affected, numerous injured have had to be treated in the open air or in makeshift clinics.
Indonesia is prone to earthquakes because of its location on the "Ring of Fire", an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin.
