Asia’s New Epicenter

With 54,517 new COVID-19 cases reported yesterday, Indonesia has vaulted past India to emerge as Asia’s latest pandemic epicenter.
 
Even those case numbers are believed to be massively undercounted after a surveypublished this weekend found the nearly half of Jakata’s 10.6 million residents of Jakarta may have been infected by COVID-19.
 
A reluctance to impose lockdowns and inefficient contact-tracing have hampered efforts to control the coronavirus. Health minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin has said health officials were surprised by the virus’s rapid spread early in this latest wave.
