COVID-19: What you should know and how to protect yourself
How to protect yourself and your children.
In early 2020, the world faced an unprecedented global health and socio-economic crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. In Indonesia, the lives of millions of children and their families have already been upended. Lockdowns and school closures affected education, mental health and access to basic health services. While we now have more knowledge and tools to better stabilize virus spread, we need to stay alert and conscientious about protecting ourselves and our children.
Since the first case of COVID-19 was reported in Indonesia, UNICEF has been leading efforts with the government, the World Health Organization and other partners to respond to the initial pandemic and its continuing endemic status.
