Indonesia

With 4,839 confirmed cases and 459 deaths as of April 14, the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia sped up after mid-March and has so far shown little sign of slowing down. The country's testing rate is among the lowest in the world, and the government has been slow to react. A travel ban on foreign tourists came into effect at the end of March, and regions that have been hit especially hard by the coronavirus, such as Jakarta, have implemented large-scale social restrictions in April. Other regions, however, have resisted such measures.
