In this study, this paper focuses on the study of euthanasia of COVID-19 patients, which causes the endless spread of COVID-19 and the possible practice of euthanasia assumed by Western medical personnel, as well as the ongoing debate over euthanasia because it is related to religious views. The above-mentioned motives are some factors that the paper attempts with an analytical descriptive writing method that cites references from several literatures such as books, journals, previous research and digital literacy. The study concludes that in Indonesia, although the Criminal Code does not explicitly mention the word euthanasia, however, based on the provisions of Article 344 of the Criminal Code, doctors should refuse to take this action even if the patient's family wishes. According to law, social norms, religion and ethics of doctors, euthanasia is not allowed. It is because the country of Indonesia, which has a majority Muslim population and religion, is in conflict with the issue.
