Indonesia has a Covid-19 crisis, the capital must open an oxygen filling station


The total number of infections has increased to 2.45 million, including 64,631 deaths. The number of patients being treated and self-isolating is currently 359,000 people, while the number of people recovering has reached 2 million.

Covid-19 patients are treated at a hospital in Bogor, Indonesia.

This country is facing a shortage of oxygen, hospital beds. Therefore, the capital Jakarta has established an oxygen pumping station for medical facilities.
Indonesia has been working hard to prevent the spread of the virus. The government imposed stricter restrictive measures on the islands of Java and Bali from July 3-20. These are also the places that are being hardest hit by this Covid-19 wave.

However, the slow pace of vaccination has left Indonesia with about 270 million people vulnerable to the Delta variant, the Covid-19 virus strain first identified earlier this year in India.
This variant has placed Indonesia in the most severe crisis since the beginning of the pandemic, causing hundreds of thousands of infections and thousands of deaths.
