March 24 was supposed to be a special day for police officer Brig. Marsel Henuk and bank employee Yulinda Adu, a couple from the Rote Islands in East Nusa Tenggara.
They obtained a marriage license from the Rote Ndao Police on Feb. 29 and sent out 2,000 invitations for their wedding reception on March 24.
But after the coronavirus pandemic hit Indonesia, the couple decided to postpone their wedding. Marsel instead directed all of his energy to stem the spread of COVID-19 on Indonesia’s southernmost islands. (JP/Djemi Amnifu and I Gede Dharma JS)
