SITUATION UPDATE

In July 2021, the delta variant caused COVID-19 cases to skyrocket dramatically in Indonesia, with confirmed cases per day increasing 700% in just a few weeks.

The country has surpassed 4 million confirmed cases to date with 140,000 confirmed deaths. The surge in cases is overwhelming Indonesia’s healthcare system. Patients face a limited supply of oxygen concentrators in some hospitals, causing even more lives to be lost.

Give2Asia is partnering with trusted nonprofit organizations to support frontline health workers and institutions responding to the pandemic.
