Indonesia faces oxygen crisis amid worsening Covid 19 surge

Indonesia’s government has ordered producers to prioritise medical oxygen amid a Covid 19 surge and a shortage of oxygen in a number of cities.

Hospitals say they have almost exhausted supplies, with one reporting that 63 patients died as a result of oxygen shortages. Indonesia is recording more than 25,000 new cases every day. Increased travel and the highly contagious Delta variant have exacerbated the crisis.
