Wibowo believes that the Southeast Asian country would be able to withstand the third wave of viral onslaught as long as the number of patients requiring treatment does not exceed hospital beds and medical teams.

"The first and second waves of the broadcast taught us a lot," Wibowo told the journalists.
Several precautions have been made, including the delivery of tens of thousands of oxygen concentrators and other medical supplies. For coronavirus patients, there are 83,609 beds in 1,011 hospitals, with the number rising if the outbreak continues.

In mid-February, the Health Ministry predicted a high of around 60,000 new cases each day, although fewer people would be admitted to hospitals.

The government has partnered with 17 telemedicine sites, allowing people who are self-isolated at home to consult with doctors and obtain medications and vitamins online.
