Volunteers like Badie Uzzaman are pitching in to help as the coronavirus spreads in Jakarta, providing meals to those who have tested positive but are forced to quarantine at home due to a lack of hospital beds.
A seven-day average from a Reuter’s tracker indicated that new infections driven by the more virulent Delta strain had been higher in the world’s fourth-most populated nation than elsewhere in recent days.
Mr. Badie works for the non-profit Dompet Dhuafa, or “Wallet for the Poor,” which established the kitchen and planned to build two more after several housewives volunteered to help prepare rice, chicken, and veggies.
“Many hospitals are at capacity,” said Ahmad Yamin, the coordinator. “We decided to set up this cooking station to assist individuals… and to provide them with nutritional meals to help their immune systems recuperate as quickly as possible.”
With hospital occupancy rates at 90%, few Covid-19 patients will be able to obtain a bed, leaving them with little choice except to self-isolate, heal at home, and prevent the virus from spreading.
Last week, daily infections in the Southeast Asian nation of over 270 million peaked over 57,000, while the death toll has more than quadrupled since early July to almost 1,000 per day.
