Sido Muncul Pledges Rp15 Billion for COVID-19 Pandemic Relief

Sido Muncul Director Irwan Hidayat expressed his concern on the COVID-19 Pandemic in Indonesia:]

“I have the utmost concern on the COVID-19 Pandemic for its overwhelming costs on human life. Nonetheless, I believe that God has a plan behind this hardship. I saw that in this difficult time, people are becoming more united, are becoming more caring to help those in need, and are becoming more observant of the Government’s guidelines. We don’t know when we will overcome this pandemic. But we what know is that in times like these, there are those who will need our help. We are committed to continue helping and to continue working with the Government to lift some of the burdens shouldered by those affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. I ask everyone to continue in their endeavour and in their prayers for health and for this terrible time to pass.”

On Monday, 2 March 2020, Indonesia announces its first two confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases. At the time, Indonesian President Joko Widodo announced that two Indonesian citizens, aged 31 and 64 years old, were infected by the virus that emerged in Wuhan, China.
