Jakarta Governor Reveals COVID-19 Health Protocol Compliance Dropped

9 November 2020 09:34 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan in Sunday’s press release said that the ‘3M health protocol’ compliance levels shown by residents of the capital city must reach at least 80 percent in order to control the potential spread of COVID-19.

The 3M health protocol refers to the government's appeal for people to always wear face masks in public, keeping safe physical distances, and washing one’s hands to break the chain of infections. 

This announcement comes after the governor claims people’s discipline is still lower than expected at roughly 70 percent for wearing masks, while the compliance level for physical distancing and hand-washing scored only 60 percent and 35 percent. 

This was revealed based on a study by the University of Indonesia’s faculty of public health (FKM UI). 

Anies Baswdan said the numbers were a decline compared to other data on October 19 that saw 75 percent of people wore masks, 70 percent maintained physical distancing, and 40 percent continued to wash their hands. 

However, the statistics fell after October 26 and November 2. “Every 3M compliance indicators have dropped significantly at the end of October,” the governor said in the statement. 

Jakarta will continue to impose the transitional PSBB social restriction from November 9 - November 22, which is a period where restrictions are loosened based on the data of COVID-19 infections.
