Jakarta (ANTARA) - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has decided to extend large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in the capital city, which were scheduled to end on September 27, 2020, by another week till October 11.

 

The step was taken since the number of new COVID-19 cases will increase if the PSBB is relaxed, the governor said in a press statement released on Thursday.

 

Based on the results of monitoring and evaluation undertaken by the Jakarta Task Force for the Acceleration of COVID-19 Handling, the PSBB will be extended by another two weeks if the number of COVID-19 cases do not drop significantly.

 

“The coordinating minister for maritime affairs and investment has also approved the automatic extension of PSBB in Jakarta by another two weeks,” the governor said. (INE)
