The hashtag #IndonesiaTerserah (whatever, Indonesia) trended over the weekend as the public poured their boiling frustrations over the apparent disregard for COVID-19 prevention measures in the country and the government’s ineffective policies.

#IndonesiaTerserah is a natural evolution of sorts of the #StayHome hashtag that was popularized at the beginning of the outbreak in Indonesia, the latter featuring frontline healthcare workers holding up signs urging people to break the chain of infections by staying at home and adhering to social distancing measures.

The former features Indonesian healthcare workers sarcastically telling people in the country to do whatever they please, as the healthcare workers’ sacrifice in fighting COVID-19 are not being reciprocated by those who recklessly and deliberately violate social distancing measures, as well as any semblance of consistent policymaking and enforcement of those policies by the government.

“I have given up on you, Indonesia. My heart aches after having struggled so much only to be betrayed like this,” the tweet above reads, featuring a photo of a healthcare worker holding up a sign that reads, “Indonesia? Whatever! Do what you want.”
