    Indonesia’s total Covid-19 cases reached 2 million with hospitals starting to fill up as the country grapples with the highly transmissible delta variant of the virus.

    The government confirmed 14,536 new cases on Monday, a new record, bringing the total to just over 2 million. Deaths have begun to pick up as the Covid-19 hospitalization rates exceed 70% in 87 cities across the country, with 294 fatalities recorded in the past 24 hours.

    “Because this is concentrated in certain regencies and cities, we can still mobilize resources from other areas,” said Harif Fadhillah, chairman of the national association of nurses. “If we let this continue, the situation can become urgent and critical.”
