Multiplied Covid-19 Transmissions Lurk Behind Loosened PSBB
The government planned to loosen the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) through several policies to restart the economy. For starter, it would allow people under the age of 45 to return to work and let all kinds of public transportation to operate.
The head of the Covid-19 task force, Doni Monardo, said that the purpose of loosened PSBB was to reduce the number of layoffs (PHK). Doni also argued that young workers tended to have excellent immunity and would not suffer much from any pain when contracting the virus. However, the government insisted that people still had to obey the health protocol strictly.
