Beware, COVID-19’s Death Rate Rise Again


The death rate due to COVID-19 has risen again. Based on the Ministry of Health's Data on August 2, the death rate reached 24 people, up from the previous day of 11 people. The highest number of deaths was in Bali with five people and Jakarta and Central Java with four people, respectively. "The increase in the mortality rate indicates a failure in early detection, which is an effort to prevent transmission," Griffith University Epidemiologist Dicky Budiman said on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Yoga Aditama, the Director of Postgraduate Studies at YARSI University Tjandra, asked the public to be vigilant. According to him, death cases due to COVID-19 rose by 54 percent from July 27 to August 2. He said that the daily death toll has been below ten people throughout June. But in July it rises to above ten people, and in August it is above 20. "We don't know what the days ahead will be," he said.
