Restrictions to Save Lives

Human beings are the primary host of the novel coronavirus. If the host is still moving around, the virus will only spread further from person to person.

Part of Jalan Hasyim Ashari, Central Jakarta, was closed with a barrier to prevent vehicles from passing, on Thursday (15/7/2021).

Jakarta has increased the number of vehicle checkpoints on the capital city’s major thoroughfares and toll roads on Thursday from 75 to 100 locations in a bid to limit community mobility.

The checkpoints’ operational hours have also been increased. Workers, even those from essential sectors, may no longer enter the capital city. The policy, which issued by the Jakarta Police along with the Jakarta administration and the Indonesian Military (TNI), is expected to effectively reduce community mobility, especially on inner city roads. The move was taken after evaluating the movement of people following the implementation of the emergency public activity restrictions (PPKM Darurat) on Saturday. (Kompas, 15/7/2021).
