“Usually they are asymptomatic individuals we refer to as ‘super spreaders’ who travel and see many people because they feel fine. The people they infect would show symptoms as they are more vulnerable to the pandemic, such as the elderly.”

Dicky warned that super spreaders and the family clusters they infect can increase the number of cases, and by extension, deaths from Covid-19.

The number of Covid-19 cases in Indonesia currently stands at 196,989 since the country recorded its first case on March 2.

According to the Covid-19 Task Force website www.covid19.go.id, 8,130 people died in the pandemic, while 140,652 people recovered from the disease.
