Community Activity Restriction Policy to Curb Covid-19 Is Ineffective in Jakarta: Medical Association

Indonesian Medical Association (IDI) Jakarta chapter head Slamet Budiarto said that the implementation of restrictions on micro-scale public activities or PPKM Mikro did not significantly curb the spread of Covid-19 in the capital.

“PPKM Mikro is ineffective, hospitals in Greater Jakarta are currently overloaded,” Slamet said on Sunday, June 27.

Slamet suggested that the previous partial lockdown or large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) should be implemented again in Greater Jakarta.

“At least the PSBB (partial lockdown) should be strictly implemented as it was previously done at the beginning of the pandemic. However, the policy should be imposed in Greater Jakarta,” Slamet said.

There is a need to cut working hours in the capital because the spread of Covid-19 often occurs during the day.

Slamet hoped that a similar mistake should be prevented from reoccurring, including limiting the number of people entering Indonesia.

As of Sunday, June 27, the new Covid-19 cases in Jakarta reached more than 9,000, the highest daily number of coronavirus cases since the pandemic hit the capital in March 2020.
