Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has limited human movement across the world. However, the pandemic must not weaken the fulfillment of justice, human rights, and democracy as the basis for building the civilization of the nation and state. On the contrary, it must be more strongly upheld and enforced. The government, as the primary duty bearer, is obliged to respect, protect, and fulfill the human rights of every citizen, as stated in numerous international and national legal instruments, including the constitution of the Republic of Indonesia (UUD 1945). This study uses a library research method and statutory approach. The author found that the government is still relatively lenient in handling the COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly, this raises concerns about the uncertainty of the health environment in Indonesia. This violates Article 28 H paragraph (1) of the 1945 Constitution, which states that every person has the right to live in physical and spiritual prosperity, to have a place to live, to have a good and healthy living environment, and the right to obtain health services. The government should issue a stricter policy in dealing with this problem.
