Indonesians who violate distancing rules could soon be forced to clean toilets
Latrine duty is among a range of punishments listed in new rules aimed at battling coronavirus infections in the South-east Asian megacity of Jakarta.
Going outside without a mask can result in a 250,000 rupiah (S$24) fine, while residents gathering in crowds could be forced to clean public facilities including toilets while wearing a vest that labels them as rule-breakers.
Firms that ignore shutdown orders or violate public health rules can be hit with fines of up to 50 million rupiah under rules made public this week. ■
