Indonesia Highlights: Eid al-Fitr Celebrations in Indonesia Toned Down over Covid-19 | Indonesian Police Urges Strict Control Policy of Arrivals at Soekarno-Hatta Airport | Indonesia Sends Aid to Indi

Minister of Industry Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita noted that “India needs oxygen tanks in dealing with its Covid-19 cases. The aid is sent by the gas, petrochemical and textile industries,” he said in a press release on Tuesday.

“The tubes are the first of 3500 units that we will send to India. Their need for oxygen is urgent, as the country has about 3900 deaths from Covid-19 on a daily basis, while they have nearly 400 thousand coronavirus cases during the same time period.”

Indonesia has banned flights from India since the country’s Covid-19 cases started to surge last April, leaving 254,197 deaths.

Hundreds of Indian nationals, as well as Indonesian citizens living in India, attempted to evade the surge by flying to Indonesia, many of them in chartered flights to such Indonesian cities as Jakarta and Pekanbaru.

The Indian strain of Covid-19, or B.1.617, is one of three foreign variants found in Indonesia, along with the B.1.1.7 mutation from Great Britain and the B.1.351 strain from South Africa.
