Indonesia Orders People Not Wearing Masks To Dig Graves For Covid-19 Victims As A Punishment

Indonesia is known for its creative ways to curb the coronavirus spread like playing ghost at night or punishing violators by asking them to dig graves for victims.

A few months ago, we reported Indonesians disguising themselves as ghosts at night to prevent people from going outside. Now the country one more time breaks headlines with its creative punishment for those who don’t wear face masks.

Indonesia Punishment For Not Wearing Mask 1
Eight people were forced to dig graves for coronavirus victims due to not wearing masks.

Of course, this law is not applied to every citizen but in certain areas only. In the East Java of Indonesia, the head of a district has asked 8 locals to dig graves for coronavirus victims at a public cemetery. These people were not wearing face masks when they went outside before.

In fact, there were 3 grave diggers at that time but they might not meet the number of graves required for Covid-19 victims, so the district head decided to lend them a hand. Anyone who is not wearing a protective mask in public will be caught by police and punished digging graves for the unfortunate victims.

Anti-maskers won't be involved in the burial activities.

Once they finish the work, the violators will be released. They are not involved in the burial process, reducing the risk of getting infected with the virus.

Till now, Indonesia has recorded more than two hundred thousand confirmed cases in which nearly 9,000 have died. Due to the surge in the number of coronavirus victims recently, the government has to reimpose stricter rules for social distancing to restrict the spread within the community.

Jakarta cemeteries are reporting the lack of graves for Covid-19 deaths.

In case you don’t know, Indonesian authorities are very creative in enforcing the laws. Previously, they let volunteers to play ghosts on the street to prevent people from going out at night. Or another time, a country leader disguised himself as a vendor to remind locals of wearing masks properly.

A couple who had premarital sex there were even beaten in public for breaking the traditional values.
