“Everyone must really understand this [the Covid-19 health protocols]. You have to send the message that the Covid-19 virus is like a grim reaper for those who are vulnerable [to the virus],” said Doni.
One of the most vulnerable groups for the Covid-19 virus is senior citizens above the age of 50.
Not a lie
Chairman of the Executive Council of Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) Said Aqil Siradj said on July 10 that the Covid-19 virus is not a conspiracy or a lie. NU is the world’s largest Islamic organization.
Said called for Indonesians to comply with Covid-19 health protocols to prevent the spread of the virus.
Moreover, Said emphasized that abiding by the health protocols is not merely to protect one’s self, but to also protect others from being infected.
He warned the public to not put themselves and others at risk of contracting the novel virus.
The chairman cautioned Indonesian society to not be influenced by hoaxes over the Covid-19 virus that is causing unrest.
