Data from the country’s health ministry showed that Indonesia reported its biggest daily rise in COVID-19 infection with 4,168 new cases on Saturday taking the total to 240,687.

Another 112 people have died from COVID-19, taking the total fatalities to 9,448, the biggest death toll in Southeast Asia.

Jakarta’s Governor Anies Baswedan said on Thursday that the country’s capital plans to double its COVID-19 testing capacity in the near future.

Jakarta alone has seen more than 1,000 new daily cases on average this month, more than double the average in the first half of August, with the tide of infections piling pressure on its under-resourced health sector.
