The world is under pressure from the novel COVID-19 pandemic. Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the
world and predicted to be affected significantly over a longer time period. Our paper aims to provide detailed reporting
and analyses of the present rapid responses to COVID-19, between January and March 2020, in Indonesia. We particularly highlight responses taken by the governments, non-government organisations and the community. We outline
gaps and limitations in the responses, based on our rapid analysis of media contents, from government speeches and
reports, social and mass media platforms. We present five recommendations toward more rapid, effective, and comprehensive responses.
