In addition, India in South Asia was also highlighted by the WHO as a densely populated country. "Indonesia and India, if the epidemic is not controlled in the two countries, the Southeast Asian region will become the new epicenter (COVID-19) in the world," Diah said in an online discussion entitled "World Health Day 2020: Real Action of Civil Society in the Pandemic Period".
