how propaganda works..
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Indonesia
Indonesia has a population of about 260 Million people. 260 000 000
the yearly deaths are about 1 800 000 (one million and eight hundred thousand) (estimated , last number from before 2010)
900 000 every 6 months
death number covid19 : 5093(five thousand ninety-three)

thats 0.57 % of the expected deaths per 6 month. It is an insignificant number. not to recognise in the total number. Just something in the "white noise"
And because of most people dying with (!) corona have severe other health problems (cancer etc) and have a big chance to of dying even without corona in the next 12 month (mostly elder people) the normal life expetancy is not changed by this new virus.
and yes

I am a trained scientist(master degree) , trained in using statistical procedures
