The Mobile Legends tournament, which takes place amid a pandemic, is drawing criticism from the COVID task force

GAMEFINITY.ID, Jakarta – The public was in an uproar after the Corona Virus Handling Task Force (COVID-19 Task Force) hosted a Mobile Legend tournament amid the high number of COVID-19 cases in Indonesia. This tournament with the title #Mabardikamar starts on Monday (November 16, 2021) until the last night on November 28, 2021.

The COVID-19 Task Force announced this via its official Instagram account @ satgascovid19.id. 32 teams took part in this tournament, with the preliminary round lasting until Saturday (November 21, 2021). Teams that qualify from the preliminary round will meet in the round of 16 from November 23 to 24, 2021. Teams that qualify one after the other will take part in the quarter-finals, semi-finals up to the final on November 28th, in which only 2 teams come together.

The original plan was to broadcast the tournament live on YouTube. The plan was later canceled after a controversy. However, the tournament, which is still taking place, has drawn criticism from several quarters. One of them was from a doctor and COVID-19 volunteer, Dr. Tirta Mandira Hudhi.

“Hahahahahahahahahaha. I do not think so. A class of the COVID Task Force for the ML tournament. If the state is like that. Meanwhile, the volunteers run out at the bottom, wkwkwkwkwkwkwkwkwkw. Laugh and cry, “Tirta tweeted on his Twitter account @tirta_hudhi, Monday (November 16, 2021).

Meanwhile, Saleh Partaonan Daulay, a member of Commission IX of the PAN Group DPR, asked what the task force’s motivation was, so they then took the time to organize events outside of dealing with the pandemic. Saleh specifically asked the task force to stop the tournament.

“But it’s strange, isn’t it, what’s the motivation for this activity? Why should it be officially announced? I am concerned that the community will get the impression that the task force has no work. If so, that is certainly not a very good thing. It is best if this activity is stopped. Back to the focus on dealing with Covid-19. This is not about the implementation of the game that uses health protocols, it is about using time and focusing on performing tasks, ”said Saleh, as quoted by Suara.com on Wednesday (11/11/2020).

As of Tuesday, November 17, 2021, data from the COVID-19 Task Force recorded positive cases of the coronavirus in Indonesia, up by 3,807 cases. Thus the total number of confirmed cases is 474,455 cases. Of the total cases, 398,636 of them recovered and 15,393 have died.
