Emrus Sihombing, a political exchange observer from Pelita Harapan University, believes that with the increasing number of Covid-19 cases in Jakarta, large-scale social restrictions imposed by the DKI Jakarta provincial government are necessary.

 

In Jakarta on Monday: “However, the implementation must remain measurable. In fact, all buffer zones must be observed. There is nothing wrong with it. If conditions exist, large-scale social restrictions are needed, and other provinces can also adopt them.”

 

According to him, the implementation of large-scale social restrictions must have a time limit, so any form of large-scale social restrictions, including "emergency braking" is very good.

 

He said: "However, this is still a very short-term plan, which may take up to two weeks or a month. This actually depends on the economic flexibility of a region or country."
