Cases of Corona virus infection first appeared in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China in December 2009. Of these cases, the virus moved quickly and infected thousands of people, not only in China but also outside the bamboo curtain country.
March 2, 2020, President Joko Widodo or Jokowi together with Minister of Health Terawan Agus Putranto announced the first Covid-19 case in Indonesia. The announcement was made at Veranda Merdeka Palace.
There are two suspects who are infected with Corona, both of whom are a mother and daughter. They were treated intensively at the Infection Disease Hospital or RSPI Prof. Dr. Sulianti Saroso, North Jakarta.
Tracing contacts with Corona patients were also carried out by the government to prevent wider transmission. From the results of the search, Covid-19 positive patients continue to increase.
A week later, the case of death from Covid-19 was first reported on March 11, 2020. The patient is a foreign national (foreigner) belonging to the category of imported cases of Corona virus. The announcement was made by Government Spokesperson for Corona Virus Affairs, Achmad Yurianto, at the Presidential Palace Complex, Central Jakarta.
Yurianto said the Covid-19 positive patient was a 53-year-old woman. The patient was admitted to the hospital in a state of severe illness and there were preceding disease factors including diabetes, hypertension, hyperthyroidism, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that had suffered long enough.
Friday March 13, 2020, Yurianto stated that patients number 01 and 03 recovered from Covid-19. They have been allowed to go home and leave the isolation room.
The government then made efforts to deal with Covid-19, whose distribution was increasingly widespread. Among them by issuing a number of rules to reduce the spread of Corona or Covid-19 virus. The rules were issued both in the form of presidential regulations (Perpres), government regulations (PP) to presidential decrees (presidential decree).
One of them is Presidential Decree No. 7 of 2020 concerning the Task Force for the Acceleration of Covid-19 Handling. This decree was signed by Jokowi on Friday, March 13, 2020. The Task Force, currently chaired by the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) Doni Monardo, was formed in order to deal with the spread of the Corona virus.
The Task Force has a number of tasks including implementing operational plans to accelerate Corona virus handling, coordinating and controlling the implementation of Corona virus handling acceleration activities.
Meanwhile, the status of certain emergencies handling Corona virus in the country turned out to have been in effect from January 28 to February 28, 2020. Status was determined during a coordination meeting at the Ministry of Human Empowerment and Culture (PMK) when discussing the return of Indonesian citizens in Wuhan, China.
Kapusdatinkom BNPB Agus Wibowo explained, because the scale was getting bigger and the President ordered the acceleration, then it was extended from 29 February to 29 May 2020. Because there were no regions in the country that had determined Covid-9's emergency status in their respective regions.
Agus Wibowo explained that if the region had determined the status of an emergency, then the status of certain emergencies issued by BNPB would no longer be valid.
Handling of corona virus cases (Covid 19) is even more intense. The government made various efforts to reduce and at the same time provide treatment for those exposed to Covid-19.

One of them, the government officially made Wisma Atlet Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, an emergency hospital for Covid 19. patients. The inauguration was conducted directly by President Jokowi, Monday, March 23, 2020. Once opened, the Emergency Hospital of Wisma Atay Kemayoran immediately received patients.
