After two two personalized stamp sheets became the source of much confusion in April, Indonesia finally released an official COVID-19 themed set of three stamps on 17 August 2020. These were printed in very limited quantities and associated items included an individual serial number.  There were 18,500 of the regular perforated sheets printed and 1,500 imperforate sheets as well as 2,020 first day covers.  The presentation packs sold out almost immediately.
