Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Indonesian Government will allow regional administrations to apply large-scale social restrictions to stem the spread of the new coronavirus disease as physical distancing has not been effective due to lack of public discipline.

"Physical distancing, which is the key to successful controlling of the transmission of COVID-19, needs to be strengthened since, in the past few days, it has been impeded by a lack of public discipline. Therefore, the government is letting regional administrations propose large-scale social distancing," spokesperson for the COVID-19 Task Force, Ahmad Yurianto, said on Wednesday at the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) building in Jakarta.

By allowing regional governments to apply large-scale social restrictions, physical distancing can be implemented more effectively in the country, he said.

"With large-scale social distancing (measures in place), the public will be encouraged to be disciplined," he said.

Large-scale social distancing measures should not be misconstrued as prohibitions, but seen as restrictions, he said adding that the public must keep in mind that coronavirus carriers are humans.

"The spread of the coronavirus runs parallel to the activities of human beings and that must be restricted,” he said.

The restrictions are necessary since many positive coronavirus patients show no or minimal symptoms, he clarified. It is possible that people who feel healthy but have been exposed to the virus are continuing to mingle in the community, he continued.

"On the other hand, many vulnerable people are still ignoring physical distancing and are not washing hands, so the transmission of the disease has continued. That is the reason why the government is intending to strengthen it (social distancing)," he said. (antara)



Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesian Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto on Saturday handed over health and coronavirus-free certificates to 188 crew members of the World Dream cruise ship who had completed their 14-day quarantine in Jakarta's Sebaru Kecil Island. He urged them to share tips on how to face the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) after returning to their respective hometowns and are reunited with their relatives and friends.

These World Dream's 188 crew members left the Sebaru Kecil Island, part of Jakarta, Saturday morning boarding the Indonesian Naval Ship KRI-Semarang 594 to the pier of the Military Naval Command (Kolinlamil) in Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta.
At the pier, the crew members were received by representatives of their regional administrations.
One of the World Dream cruise ship's crew members named Vidya told journalists that "being passionate about staying healthy" has become the motto for her and her colleagues during their stay in Jakarta's small island.
"What is important for us during the observation period is that we have the passion to stay healthy and keep clean," said the 40-year-old woman.
The government provided Vidya and her colleagues with buses to take them to destinations such as the Halim Perdanakusuma Airport and Soekarno Hatta International Airport since several of them would depart for their hometowns Saturday afternoon and evening.

Several others were dropped off at hotels or homes of relatives while awaiting departure for their homes, he stated, adding that he did not wish to divulge the names crew members and addresses of the homes of their families or hotels where they are staying in Jakarta.

"However, if they are willing to give out information about that and their experience, that is their choice," Director of the Disaster Mitigation and Fire Management Directorate General of Regional Administration Affairs at the Home Ministry Safrizal ZA said.
"The government does not disseminate information that tampers with the confidentiality of any individual's privacy. However, if they want to share their experiences, they can do so," he added.

Some 60 percent of the 188 crew members are from Bali Province. They worked as chefs on the World Dream cruise ship.

The Indonesian government has selected Sebaru Kecil Island as the quarantine site for 188 Indonesians from the World Dream liner and 69 Indonesians employed as cabin crew members of the Diamond Princess cruise liner suffering from COVID-19.
