The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is expected to infect millions of people all over the world. The economic impact is expected to be large and can lead to a global recession. Millions of people will be pushed into poverty. In this paper, we estimate the impact of COVID-19 on poverty in Indonesia. One projection puts 1.2 million people in the country would eventually be infected. The economic impact is also expected to be severe. Compared to the baseline projection of 5 percent economic growth in 2020, various studies estimate that COVID-19 would reduce Indonesia’s economic growth to between 1 and 4 percent. We find that under the mildest COVID-19 impact on economic growth, the poverty rate will increase from 9.2 percent in September 2019 to 9.7 percent by the end of 2020. This implies that 1.3 million more people will be pushed into poverty. Under the most severe projection, the poverty rate will increase to 12.4 percent, implying 8.5 million more people will become poor
