JAKARTA: Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Tuesday (Mar 31) declared the country to be in a state of “public health emergency”, while signing a government regulation that would pave the way for cities and provinces to impose “large-scale social restrictions” to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The government regulation provides a legal basis for cities and provinces to shut down non-essential services, limit religious and social gatherings, as well as restrict people’s movements.
