According to him, the government is also increasing the supply of medical oxygen in health facilities. 
 
Under normal conditions, the demand of medical oxygen in Indonesia is only 700 tons per day. 
 
During the peak of the Delta wave in mid-2021, the demand soared to 2,200 tons per day.
 
"Now we have prepared 16 thousand oxygen concentrators which we have sent to various hospitals in Indonesia. We are also installing 31 oxygen generators in a number of health facilities," explained Budi.
 
In addition, the government has procured Molnupiravir, a drug that has been shown to be able to reduce the symptoms of COVID-19 patients.
 
"This has been proven to reduce the number of patients," said the former Deputy Minister of State-Owned Enterprises.
