- Is Indonesia the next India? The Coronavirus Crisis in Indonesia With Irma Hidayana
How did Indonesia become the latest COVID-19 hot spot? Can the new wave of the virus be attributed to dangerous new variants, lack of funding, government mismanagement, or a combination of factors?
Irma Hidayana, an independent public health activist with a Ph.D. in health and behavior studies from Columbia University, talks with John Torpey, presidential professor of sociology and history and director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies, about Indonesia’s current battle with COVID-19 and local civil society efforts to track the pandemic’s spread.
