What's happening in Indonesia?

As of 23rd July, Indonesia became the country reporting the highest number of daily Covid-19 cases around the world.

Covid-19 cases are surging in Indonesia and the country is poor-equipped to contain infection rates and to treat affected patients. This is sparking concern for new, potentially more contagious, strains of the virus to develop.

The current restrictions in place to help contain the virus are impacting on the country's poorest the most. The Covid-19 crisis in Indonesia is quickly becoming a humanitarian crisis as people struggle to access basic supplies, including food and medicine.
