Indonesia's COVID-19 surge: Could it get as bad as in India? - DW News.

Indonesia's COVID-19 situation is currently a 'worst case scenario', according to a government minister. Earlier in the week, the country surpassed India's daily totals of coronavirus cases, registering more than 56,000. The uptick in cases has been blamed on the more infectious Delta variant.
Worst hit are the islands of Java and Bali. Some hospitals here are having to turn away patients because they don't have capacity and enough oxygen. The government has imposed newer tougher restrictions, to control the spread of the virus. But for some, its already too late.
