Indonesia sees most infections since February

As the coronavirus continues to spread in Southeast Asia, Indonesia on Thursday confirmed 8,892 new cases. This is the first time since February that the daily number has exceeded 8,000.

The resurgence is attributed to people who traveled during the holiday period following the end of Ramadan in May.

The government has instructed local officials to track down and test infected people.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo inspected vaccinations at a university hospital on Wednesday.
Afterward he said he wants to see one million inoculations a day by July.

Indonesia has been the worst-hit country in Southeast Asia with 1.88 million confirmed cases and more than 52,000 deaths.
