During a recent call out, Ardi's team retrieved the body of the mother of Novi Bawazir, who said the family had been unable to get the 64-year-old into a bed in hospital as her oxygen levels plummeted.
"My mother had a 97 rate on the oximeter," Novi said, referring to a device measuring oxygen saturation in the blood. "Within an hour, it was 37, and within minutes, she was gone."
Indonesia, which is the world's fourth most populous country with more than 270 million people, has in the past week seen coronavirus cases jump roughly sevenfold from a month ago to as high as 47,000, with the death toll also doubling from early July.
