JAKARTA: Indonesia has reported another two positive Covid-19 cases today, bringing the total tally to four so far.

Indonesian government spokesman Achmad Yurianto said the latest two cases were being treated at the Sulianti Saroso Infectious Diseases Hospital (RSPI) in the capital.

“(These are) cases 3 and 4. (There is) no need to specify their gender, they are aged 33 and 34,” Yurianto said in a press briefing at Istana Jakarta here that was also telecast live over local television.

On March 2, Indonesia, with a population of over 270 million, was included in the list of nations with coronavirus cases after two of its citizens from Depok, near Jakarta, tested positive for the virus.
