JAKARTA, Sept. 27 (Xinhua): The number of Covid-19 cases in Indonesia rose by 1,390 within one day to 4,209,403, with the death toll adding by 118 to 141,585, the country's Health Ministry said on Monday.

According to the ministry, 3,771 more people were discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of patients recovering from Covid19 to 4,027,548.

To date, at least 49.19 million people in Indonesia have received two shots of vaccines, while 87.74 million have taken the first doses, the ministry said.

Indonesia, with a population of more than 270 million, is targeting to vaccinate 208.2 million people.

Indonesia has also shed its undesirable tag as South-East Asia's Covid-19 epicentre, and now has the least daily infections per capita in the region.

Daily infections topped 50,000 at their peak in July, now number less than 3,000 per day.

The positivity rate has fallen below 5%, according to Our World in Data, below the threshold the World Health Organisation has said was conducive to governments reopening their economies. - Xinhua
