Covid-19: Government Calls for Low-Key CNY Celebrations in Indonesia

Coordinating for Human Development and Culture Minister Muhadjir Effendy called for a low-key Lunar New Year celebration to prevent the spread of Covid-19 during the festive period.

"The government concerned about the Chinese New Year activities. Don't let the sacred festival brings a negative impact on the country's efforts to fight against the Covid-19," Muhadjir told the committee of the National Chinese New Year celebration during an audience on Tuesday, February 9.

He said an outdoor celebration could pull a big crowd that could become the source of Covid-19 clusters.

"The Chinese New Year celebration is not only being observed by the Confucian devotees or Chinese community. But it is also a cultural event that attracts public enthusiasm in Indonesia," the senior minister said.

He also hoped that this year's celebration will be held in a low-profile manner by utilizing the technology to prevent crowd-pulling activities.

The people are advised to avoid firecracker display, lion dance performances, and presenting or receiving a red packet directly.
