Abstract

This presentation discusses health workers' legal protection in carrying out their obligations to provide services to patients infected with the coronavirus. This, of course, gives inner peace to medical personnel on duty. This paper uses a normative legal approach, which sees the Law as a phenomenon related to legal protection for medical personnel applied during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Honorary Council of Indonesian Medical Discipline seeks to provide legal protection for health workers, not only for doctors but for other health workers. This research concludes that health workers who have performed their duties following professional standards and standard operating procedures are entitled to legal protection.
