"As of Wednesday, (we have) seven, more patients, with most of them suffering mild to moderate illness, except patients, who are identified as cases 29 and 30, with moderate illness. All of them are imported cases (of coronavirus)," he said in the Presidential Palace compounds in Jakarta Wednesday.

The seven patients were identified as cases 28 to 34, he said.

Based on the latest developments, the patient identified as case 25 died Wednesday, while the patients, identified as cases 06 and 14, recovered and were discharged from the hospital to undergo quarantine in their respective homes, he said.

As of Wednesday, 31 patients with COVID-19 infections are still in isolation at the hospital.

All the seven patients are Indonesian citizens, he said.

The new patients include a 37-year old male, identified as case 28, with mild-to-moderate illness, a 51-year old male, identified as case 29, with moderate illness, and an 84-year old male, identified as case 30, with moderate illness.
