In a written statement made available on March 2, Jakarta Archdiocese vicar-general Samuel Pangestu advised parishioners to avoid physical greetings and direct contact with fellow church members to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, which has taken thousands of lives globally after it was first discovered in Wuhan, China, late last year.
