Indonesia’s COVID-19 Task Force reported on Wednesday, December 22, that 834,042 more people have received their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, and the total figure is currently at 108,540,055 people. Meanwhile, 153,503,685 have been partially jabbed in Indonesia.

The government also continues to distribute the third shoot amid the ongoing concern about new variant Omicron. Currently, more than 1.2 million people have received their booster shot.

The Task Force also reported 179 confirmed cases on Wednesday. Jakarta reported the most cases (43), followed by Riau Islands (29) and West Java (19) in number two and three, respectively.

10 deaths were also reported on Wednesday, bringing the total death toll to 144,034.

Previously, spokesperson for the Task Force Wiku Adisasmito said on Tuesday that the government plans to add three quarantine sites in Jakarta for international travelers. Penggilingan flats in East Jakarta, Daan Mogot flats in West Jakarta, and the Education Quality Security Institution (LPMP) building in South Jakarta will be converted into centered quarantine sites.

The addition of quarantine sites is in response to the government's decision to extend the quarantine period to 14 from 10 days earlier due to the emergence of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in 92 countries, Adisasmito said.
