The COVID-19 cases in Indonesia rose by 44,721 within one day to 2,877,476, with the death toll adding by 1,093 to 73,582, the health ministry said on Sunday.

The daily caseload was slightly down from 51,952 the previous day, but the number of deaths stayed almost the same.

According to the ministry, 29,264 more people were discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of recovered patients to 2,261,658.

In order to reduce mobility, the COVID-19 Handling Task Force issued new rules on Saturday related to restrictions on community activities during the upcoming Eid al-Adha holiday.

At a virtual press conference on Sunday, the Indonesian Medical Association (IDI) has expressed hopes that the emergency restrictions of community activities, which is locally known as PPKM Darurat, would be extended and expanded to more areas that have less hospital capacity to handle COVID-19 cases.

So far, the extension of PPKM hasn't been officially announced by the government. The restriction was originally planned to be carried out from July 3 to 20.
