In November 2019, a pandemic called Coronavirus Disease 2019 occurred. This pandemic not only a medical issue but also has an impact on people’s psychology in the world. One of them is the phenomenon of dehumanization toward medical staff. This research is a qualitative study using a literature review. Lack of true information, lack of knowledge, massive reporting, fear, and anxiety about being infected with COVID-19 results in stigma. The stigma and fading of the noble values found in the Islamic Religion and Pancasila led to the dehumanization of medical staff. Conclusion: The phenomenon of dehumanization in medical staff that occurs in Indonesia is caused by four factors, include: information, knowledge, psychological, and the fading of Islamic and Pancasila noble values. Dehumanization is very contrary to the noble values and humanity that are upheld by the Islamic Religion and Pancasila. The solution for these problems is to respect and empathize with medical staff, implement social and physical distancing, healthy living patterns, find accurate information, and uphold the noble values of Islam and Pancasila.
