Covid-19: Indonesia reports 9,905 new cases, 7 more deaths

Jakarta: Indonesia on Friday confirmed 9,905 new cases of Covid-19, the highest single-day rise since Sept 1, 2021, amid the spread of the Omicron variant in the archipelagic nation. With the increase, the country’s tally of infections rose to 4,319,175, the country’s Health Ministry said. The ministry also reported that the death toll from Covid-19 in Indonesia in the past 24 hours rose by seven to 144,268, while 2,028 more people recovered from the disease, bringing the total number of recoveries to 4,131,333. As the government is accelerating its national vaccination programs to curb the spread of the virus, more than 183.67 million people have received their first doses of vaccines, while over 127.16 million have taken the second doses. Indonesia started mass Covid-19 vaccinations in January last year after the authorities approved the emergency use of the Chinese Sinovac vaccine. Aiming to fully vaccinate 208.26 million people in the country, the government has administered over 312.22 million doses, including the third booster jabs.
