Indonesia copes with oxygen shortages as COVID-19 cases rise
Aljazeera says Indonesia is struggling with one of Asia’s worst coronavirus outbreaks as new cases more than quadrupled in a month, prompting a critical shortage of oxygen in several areas.
At least 33 people died at a hospital in Yogyakarta when its supply ran out over the weekend and the government on Monday asked oxygen producers to send all their supplies to hospitals and clinics.
The highly contagious Delta variant of COVID-19 has led to a huge increase in infections across the country.
