Indonesia’s real coronavirus toll ‘likely 1,000 already’


Indonesia’s death toll from the new coronavirus has likely reached 1,000, nearly double the official figure of 535, Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI) chairman Daeng Faqih was quoted as saying.

There is a discrepancy between official figures and IDI’s estimate, as official data did not include the death of patients suspected to have coronavirus but still awaiting tests.

“Those who were yet to be confirmed with COVID-19 were also reported by hospitals as death by coronavirus,” Daeng told local media.
