The number of COVID-19 cases in Indonesia is currently recorded at 467,113 cases with a total death rate of 15,211, while the Philippines has 407,838 cases with a total death of 7,832. This figure looks quite far from the Philippines as the second country with the most cases of Corona deaths in Southeast Asia.

Based on the worldometers (16/11/2020), here are the details of the corona cases in ASEAN:

 Previously, President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) claimed that the active cases of COVID-19 in Indonesia were still better than the world average. Based on data on October 11, 2020, the average active case of Covid-19 is 19.97%. This figure is lower than the world average of active COVID-19 cases which reached 22.1%.

"It is our big task here, how to keep the death rate pressed," said Jokowi.

However, the former mayor of Solo admitted that the Indonesian Covid-19 death rate was still above the world average. The death rate is still at 3.55 percent. Meanwhile, the world average is 2.88 percent.
