Indonesia posted another day of record high coronavirus cases on Thursday, with 3,622 new infections as the world’s fourth-most populous nation grapples to contain a spread that has caused the region’s highest Covid-19 death toll.

The 134 deaths reported on Thursday took total fatalities to 7,750 from among Indonesia’s 184,268 cases. Public health experts say the real number is likely to be higher given Indonesia’s low testing rates.
