Authorities in Jakarta asked people who violate mask-wearing rules (apparently super hard to follow for some people 🤷🏻♂️) to lay inside a mock-up coffin and
contemplate where their actions went wrong.
The media reported that people caught without a facemask in certain districts were told to spend some time in mock-up coffins as passers-by take pictures.
Would doing something like this help? Maybe(?). In all seriousness, the punishment was quickly stopped after police met backlash from the community around.
As Jakarta rapidly enters its worst period yet of the pandemic, we can’t stress enough how important it is to follow health guidelines.
