The number of deaths from coronavirus in the country has doubled since May. Experts believe that the real number may be much higher.
More than 100 thousand COVID deaths were registered in Indonesia. This was reported by Reuters on Wednesday, August 4.
According to the latest data, the total number of infected people in Indonesia reached 3.53 million, while 1,747 people died during the day. In total, 100,636 fatal cases from COVID-19 were recorded in the country.
In turn, experts in the field of public health in Indonesia believe that the real number may be much higher. The number of victims of the coronavirus at the end of May was about 50 thousand people — that is, half as many.
As the doctors explained, the situation is due to a lack of testing, and also stressed that ” patients are admitted to the hospital in a serious or critical condition.”
