BTS McDonald’s Meal Sparks Frenzy and Store Closures in Indonesia

Rebecca Davis editorK-pop group BTS’ limited-edition branded McDonald’s meals were so hot in Indonesia this week that dozens of stores had to close for fear that the crowds clamoring for them would spread COVID-19.The meal debuted locally on Wednesday, and demand quickly overwhelmed stores. Most Indonesian customers had placed their orders online due to the pandemic, leading to huge crowds of motorcycle-taxi deliverymen left queuing for hours inside and outside stores — and raising concerns that the circumstances could lead to a super-spreader event.Jakarta police have ordered 32 McDonald’s stores to temporarily close for “violating health protocols” by failing to limit capacity to 50% and enforce social-distancing measures.
