In Indonesia, there is a unusual penalties for mask objectors: Some of them are tombs for Covid-19-Ill have to dig. The competent dead graves helps, because you are overwhelmed.

In Indonesia, there is the same Problem as in many other countries of the world: As a precautionary measure against the spread of the Coronavirus, a Mask, a requirement is introduced – but some of the Incorrigible refuse to wear the mouth-nose protection. While in the Rest of the world, the authorities then react, usually with fines, in Indonesia creative.

So mask objectors have already had to pushups to complete, or in the Public eye for a Minute in a coffin put. A further penalty seems, however, macabre – and-bitter seriously: Who wants to wear a mask, is committed as a grave digger, reported the Indonesian newspaper “The Jakarta Post”. The mask objectors need to dig graves for people who died after a Covid-19-disease.

During the pandemic, so many people die that the competent gravedigger make it barely, to the graves to prepare. “There are only three gravediggers were available at the time, so I thought that these people could help you”, said the authorities chief who has thought about the punishment.

He expects it to have a deterrent effect. Each of the two mask objectors were for a grave responsibility: A trench dress and another in the grave with the wooden panels had to. At the funerals they were not allowed to participate because of the risk of infection.

Space on the cemeteries is closely

According to the “Jakarta Post” the Infection levels in the Regency, as well as in the whole country. Many people succumb to their Covid-19-disease. An employee of a cemetery in the capital, Jakarta, told the US broadcaster ABC that there in a week 201 people buried had been before the pandemic, there have been 70 to 80 funerals per week. Thus, the Concerns are greater, there could soon be no more space to bury the dead in the cemetery.
