Almost 2,500 people have been taken to hospital with serious injuries and more than 156,000 people are displaced due to the extensive damage to homes.
In a press conference, the spokesperson for the National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB) Sutopo Purwo Nugroho went on to say that another 1,467 people were admitted to hospitals owing to the injuries they sustained in the Sunday quake.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a magnitude-7.0 natural disaster struck right along the coast of the Indonesian island of Lombok, near Loloan village Sunday night. Thousands of people have been sleeping in makeshift shelters or out in the open.
Aid organizations, already on Lombok after it was hit a week earlier by a 6.4 quake that killed 16 people, said they were stepping up their humanitarian efforts.
Majdi said, "The scale of this quake is massive for us here in West Nusa Tenggara, this is our first experience.We have limited human resources".
Hundreds of injured victims have been treated outside damaged hospitals in the main city of Mataram and other affected areas. "Some paramedics have to be at the shelters, some need to be mobile", Majdi said.
Local authorities, global relief groups and the central government have begun organising aid, but shattered roads have slowed efforts to reach survivors. The military said it sent five planes carrying food, medicine, blankets, field tents and water tankers.
"The number of fatalities, however, will certainly increase because there are still victims buried under the debris of a collapsed mosque and have not been evacuated in the village of Lading-Lading in North Lombok Regency", Sutopo said.
On Wednesday, the rescue workers using heavy equipment have resumed search for survivors in the mosque, now reduced to a pile of concrete and metal bars, with its towering green dome folded in on itself.
Rescuers have found three bodies and also managed to pull one man alive from the twisted wreckage. An interagency meeting will be held Thursday to compare information, Nugroho said.
Meanwhile, the evacuation of tourists from the Gili Islands, three tiny, coral-fringed tropical islands off the northwest coast of Lombok has finished, officials said.
The island is popular with tourists and now about 1,000 foreign visitors have been evacuated to nearby islands.
At Lombok's airport, dozens of tourists slept on the floor as they waited for flights off the island.
