Reading the numbers

The Spokesperson for the Covid-19 Task Force at UNS Hospital, Tonang Dwi Ardyanto, said that based on the Indonesian Ministry of Health’s data from June 3, Covid-19 deaths of those with a pre-existing condition make up 26.34 percent.

Covid-19 deaths of people who had more than one pre-existing condition make up more than 50 percent of total coronavirus-related deaths.

Patients who passed away purely from Covid-19 in Indonesia make up 7.31 percent which, according to Tonang, is far lower than other countries where the estimate is around 20 percent.

Tonang warned that having no pre-existing condition does not guarantee an individual has a strong immune system.
