JAKARTA, Oct 18 (Xinhua): The number of Covid-19 cases in Indonesia rose by 626 within one day to 4,235,384, with the death toll adding by 47 to 142,999, the country's Health Ministry said on Monday.

According to the ministry, 1,593 more people were discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of patients recovering from Covid-19 to 4,075,011.

To date, at least 107.98 million people in Indonesia have taken their first doses of Covid-19 vaccines, 63.18 million have been fully vaccinated, and about 1.07 million Indonesians have received their third doses, the health ministry said.

Children's playgrounds in malls or shopping centers in Indonesia are allowed for reopening starting Oct. 19 as the transmission of the pandemic declines, said Coordinating Minister for Maritime and Investment affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan on Monday.

"We require that children's playgrounds must record parents' phone numbers and addresses as well as their playing time for tracing needs in case of transmission," Pandjaitan said at a virtual press conference.

Meanwhile, the audience capacity in cinemas which was previously limited to 50 percent is now allowed up to 70 per cent.

Indonesia has extended its restrictions, locally known as PPKM which expires on Monday, until Nov. 8. - Xinhua
