New Delhi: The situation of corona epidemic in Indonesia has become the same as it was in India in April-May. On Wednesday, 54,517 new covid-19 cases have been found in Indonesia. This is the record for the highest number of patients in a single day in Indonesia. In this way, it has now become the new corona hub of Asia.
Corona havoc in Indonesia:
There is a stir in Indonesia due to getting such a large number of patients simultaneously. Officials say that the country's health system may collapse if the situation is not brought under control soon. The situation will become difficult to handle and there may be an outcry in the country.
Corona spike in Indonesia:
Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world. The population of the country is more than 27 crores. There are as many corona patients being found here in a day as they used to get in India in the last months.
If this rapid phase of infection continues, then the situation may become uncontrollable. According to a survey report published last Saturday, half of the population of Indonesia's capital Jakarta may be infected with corona. An emergency lockdown has been imposed there last week.
Experts say that this situation in Indonesia has not happened suddenly. The country is facing the penalty of not implementing a strict lockdown, not conducting corona tests and avoiding contract tracing. Officials could not even guess how fast the current wave of corona virus was spreading. Now they are worrying that if the process of getting such number of patients continues, then even the hospitals will not be able to handle the patients.
Prime Minister Joko Widodo has expressed hope that the country will soon recover from this global crisis on the basis of vaccination.
