Indonesia’s Daily Covid-19 Tally Returns to pre-Delta Levels


New Cases: 16,744
Total Cases: 3,967,048
Recovered: 3,522,048
Deaths: 125,342


Jakarta. Indonesia recorded the lowest daily tally of Covid-19 cases in more than two months on Sunday, with figures returning to the level before the highly contagious Delta variant began to dominate new infections.

The country has added 12,408 new cases in the past 24 hours, the lowest daily count since June 16, to take its total to 3,979,456, government figures show.

A steady decline in newly cases over the last few weeks suggests that the partial lockdown reimposed since July 3 begins to deliver results.

The Delta variant is blamed for a dramatic surge in newly cases and deaths and has become the dominant variant in the Indonesian outbreak since late June. At its peak, the country recorded more than 56.000 new cases and over 2,000 deaths in a single day.

However, Indonesia remains among the deadliest places in the world at the current stage of the pandemic, with the daily death toll staying within four-digit territory.

There have been 1,030 Covid-19 deaths in the 24-hour period, bringing the total death toll to 126,372. The daily death toll has been above the 1,000 mark since July 16.

The total number of active cases stands at 306,760, also the lowest in over a month.
