Human rights should be at the centre of COVID-19 prevention, preparedness, containment, and treatment measures, in order to protect public health and support people at the highest risk of being infected. Full respect for human rights is vital to protect the safety and health of the whole community. In addition, respect for human rights is essential at all stages of the crisis. Amnesty International has concerns regarding the response of the Indonesian Government to the pandemic, specifically regarding the rights of health and other workers, the right to information, and the right to freedom of expression and opinion.
