Jakarta Reimposes Social Restrictions
In Jakarta, Indonesia, PSBB (Pembatasan Sosial Berskala Besar) or a large scale social restrictions are coming back again. Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan announced on Wednesday, 9 September 2020, that the administration was reimposing the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) policy amid a rising number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the capital.
The decision was made considering the high number of daily COVID-19 cases and deaths in the capital, as well as the city's bed occupancy rate.ave As of Wednesday, health authorities recorded that 1,347 people in Jakarta had died from COVID-19.
Despite all of the facts, there are a few comments against this decision. Because by reimposing these restrictions many workplaces are going to be closed and businesses are about to be non-active again. It may bring some downfall to the economic state of Indonesia, especially in Jakarta.
The end of this pandemic not only in the hands of the governments and all the health professionals, but it is also in our hands. We need to be aware that coronavirus is still around us, invisible, and it kills people. It doesn’t see who you are or what you’re capable of. It attacks everyone. So, let us all be responsible, and take care of one another. Because we are in this together. If you are in Indonesia, especially in the Cikarang area and you need help, please contact us. We will help you as much as we can.
Let us all stay healthy, and be kind to one another.
