The COVID-19 pandemic was first confirmed to have spread to Indonesia on 2 March 2020, after a dance instructor and her mother tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.

Cases[change | change source]

The first cases included a dance instructor and her mother in Depok, West Java. Both were infected from a Japanese national.[2][3] By 9 April, the pandemic had spread to all 34 provinces in the country after Gorontalo confirmed its first case, with Jakarta, East Java, and Central Java being the worst-hit.
