Jakarta Metropolitan Police to Seal Off 10 Thoroughfares
The Jakarta Metropolitan Police will seal off 10 roads in the capital, as the number of Covid-19 cases stood at 5,582 last Sunday, up from 4,895 the day before.
Jakarta Metropolitan Police spokesman Grand Police Commissioner Yusri Yunus said the policy will come into effect on Monday evening, June 21. He did not say when it will end.
“We will block off the roads for seven hours from 9 pm to 4 am to limit individual mobility,” he said.
Yusri added that the locales, which included hangout spots like Cikini and Sabang in Central Jakarta, as well as Kemang and Bulungan in the southern part of the capital, are known for their vibrancy.
"These have more than their fair share of hip restaurants and cafes, which will draw people seeking a place to hang out,” he said.
Jakarta Metropolitan Police Traffic Director Grand Police Commissioner Sambodo Purnomo said a number of vehicles will still be exempted.
