The Movement of Muhammadiyah Covid-19 Command Center (MCCC) and Satgas PBNU on Covid-19 Prevention (Comparative Study between Religious Social Organizations)
Covid-19 is a new problem in life today. The rapid spread of covid-19 has attacked and paralyzed various sectors, such as the economy, education, social, or religious. Campaigns to prevent the spread of covid-19 have always been carried out not only by the government but also community organizations. NU and Muhammadiyah in this case as representatives of the largest Islamic organizations in Indonesia always play a role. This was proven by the formation of each institution that specifically handled the spread of covid-19 in Indonesia, namely the Muhammadiyah Covid-19 Command Center (MCCC) Movement by Muhammadiyah and the PBNU Task Force by Nahdlatul Ulama. The movements carried out by these two mass organizations certainly have different ways and characteristics, although in general they can both be mapped into direct movements and virtual movements through social media. For example, the optimization of the Autonomous Body and lower organizations carried out by NU in the campaign movement is certainly different from the campaign to the community through optimizing the role of universities and students by Muhammadiyah. With the comparative method and critical-analysis approach, this paper seeks to provide a complete picture of the similarities and differences in the campaigns carried out by NU and Muhammadiyah to prevent the spread of Covid-19, both direct movements and virtual movements through social media.
