“We issued 1,824 of them Rp. 330.910.000 [$ 22,547.88] worth of fines and made the rest do community service. We also gathered Rp. 201.6 million in fines from restaurants and other establishments which failed to comply with health protocols,” Arifin said.

He added that the authorities gathered an additional Rp. 115.5 million in fines from massage parlors, sauna, bars and other entertainment places that stealthily opened for business despite orders that they stay closed.

Jakarta has extended transitory large-scale social distancing until July 30 as the number of Covid-19 cases in the capital continued to increase.

Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan approved the penalties for those who violate health protocols like failure to wear masks, keeping distances and opening malls and other establishments at 50 percent capacity last April.
