Last weekend, it was revealed that the spike of active Covid-19 cases in Indonesia over the last six days had entered a very high phase. The number of active Covid-19 cases was found to have increased by 22,350. On June 18, 2021, the average number of active cases in Indonesia even reached 6.87 per cent, while the world was only at 6.5 per cent.
In addition to Indonesia, the spread of the Corona virus has also increased sharply globally. Deaths from the coronavirus, both old and new variants worldwide, crossed the 4-million mark on Thursday (17/6), amid high efforts by countries to provide Covid-19 vaccines to their populations. Based on Reuters records, it took more than a year to touch the first 2 million deaths from Covid-19. However, aadditional 2 million deaths were recorded in just 166 days. The top five countries with the highest total number of deaths from Covid-19 are the United States, Brazil, India, Russia and Mexico. These five countries represent about 50% of all deaths worldwide.
The fact or description of the global distribution of Covid-19 is still far from the expected improvement. Indonesia is one of the countries, which is struggling to improve this condition. The total lockdown option has not yet been implemented in Indonesia. However, the Large-Scale Social Restrictions and tightened Community Activity Restrictions have been enforced. Meanwhile, the provision of vaccines continues to be increased throughout the country. These efforts must, of course, be accompanied by consistent enforcement of strict health protocols, a healthy way of life, and other supporting factors in a long term.
