Anti-maskers forced to dig graves for COVID-19 victims in Indonesia

According to a report by local authorities in Indonesia, eight people who broke the country’s face mask laws ordered to dig graves for the COVID-19 victims.

As reported by the Jakarta Post, East Java Province punished masked violators in a local cemetery.

“Soono told local media,” There are only three available cemeteries at the moment, so I figured I could put these people to work with them. ”

“Hopefully it can create a harmful effect against the breach,” he said.

None of the outlets were forced to handle the corpses. Only local health officials are wearing full-body protective equipment to limit the risk of exposure.

According to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University, the infection has seen more than 221,000 cases in Indonesia, including at least 8,841 deaths.
