Jakarta: A delta variant of the Corona virus, first found in India, is wreaking havoc in South Asian Indonesia. The delta variant is so strong that Indonesia has overtaken India to become Corona’s new stronghold in Asia. The number of coronavirus infections in Indonesia has crossed 40,000 for two consecutive days. Officials have warned that the Delta variant is now emerging from the dense population of Java and spreading very fast to other areas.
According to Japan’s Nikkei Asia newspaper, 47,899 new cases of the corona virus were reported in Indonesia on Tuesday. So on Monday 40,427 people were infected with the corona. So on the seed side, a total of 31,443 new cases of corona infection were reported in India on Tuesday. Which is the lowest figure in the last 18 days. Bodi Sadikin, Indonesia’s health minister, said beds were still vacant in many hospitals across the country, but cases of corona infection were high in many areas due to the outbreak of the Delta variant.
delta variant is still limited to Java, but now its cases are spreading to many areas like Lampung, East Kalimantan, South Sumatra,” said Boudi. We have increased our oversight in these areas. If we talk about the total number of corona virus cases, India still has the highest number of corona cases in Asia. So far 4 lakh 10 thousand people in India have lost their lives due to this epidemic. Then comes Indonesia. Where 68 thousand people have lost their lives.
There are currently 4 lakh 31 thousand cases of corona active in India. So the recovery rate has also risen to 97.28 per cent, the highest in the world. Importantly, amid the Corona epidemic in Indonesia, there is a severe shortage of oxygen these days. Like India, Indonesia has long lines for oxygen. The situation is so bad that people are dying in their homes in the hope of oxygen.
People are wandering for oxygen
Oxygen gas has become very expensive in Indonesia and even after wandering a lot, oxygen is not available. “I have come to buy a tank of oxygen for my mother,” Pinta, who was standing in line outside a shop, told a news channel. My mother tested positive for corona on Sunday and we checked into several hospitals to recruit her, but not a single bed was found empty. We found a list that says we get oxygen here. But the shops were empty everywhere.
