MUHAMMADIYAH.ID, JAKARTA – The COVID-19 cases in Indonesia surge after the Eid al-Fitr holiday and homecoming.
Ignorance about health protocol and distrust of the existence of COVID-19 lead to the critical phase as happened in Kudus, Jakarta, Madura, and other areas.
Responding to the condition, President of Muhammadiyah Haedar Nashir reminded Muhammadiyah people to remain to obey the movement teachings, namely prioritizing Al-Qur’an, as-sunnah, science, and wisdom.
“Why do the cases dramatically rise? It probably occurs because we ignore, are arrogant, and underestimate to be infected with the COVID-19,” criticized Haedar in the handover of Universitas Muhamamdiyah Bandung on Wednesday (16/6).
Meanwhile, Chairman of Muhammadiyah Dadang Kahmad believed that Muhammadiyah people aren’t the ones who consider that the COVID-19 is conspiracy.
“I think Muhammadiyah people don’t use their mind if they say the COVID-19 is conspiracy. It’s real. Many people have fallen sick, suffered from the virus, and passed away. Indeed, Muhammadiyah established the Muhamamdiyah COVID-19 Command Center (MCCC) to tackle the pandemic. We have provided hospitals, doctors, and other facilities to cope with the outbreak,” declared Dadang.
He urged all Muhammadiyah people to always obey health protocols.
“People should be aware that we have to be cautious about the coronavirus and believe Allah also creates a tiny creature such as this virus,” he expressed.
