A lockdown will damage the entire Indonesia economy even it is short term


Indonesia President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has emphasized that he will not impose a lockdown although the number of COVID-10 cases in the country is rapidly increasing day by day.

Mr Jokowi has also admonished regional heads who try to compel stricter movement restrictions in their regions, such as closing down offices and stores.

“I have gathered data about countries that have imposed lockdowns and after analyzing them, I don’t think we should go that way,” Mr Jokowi said during a limited meeting at the Presidential Palace on Tuesday (24 March).

He explained that Indonesian people’s cultural characteristics and discipline were the two main reasons why the government had shelved a lockdown. Mr Jokowi added that the decision was also made after evaluating policies enacted by other countries during the pandemic.

Instead of imposing a lockdown, he asked the people of Indonesia to stay at home and maintain physical distance from each other to curb the spread of COVID-19.
