Jakarta imposes partial lockdown as COVID-19 cases surge

JAKARTA: Soldiers and police hit the streets of Indonesia's capital Jakarta Friday (Apr 10) to enforce its toughest social-distancing rules yet as COVID-19 infections surge and critics warn of a looming public-health disaster.

Violators face heavy fines and up to a year in jail for breaking the new rules, which include a ban on gatherings of more than five people, limiting restaurants to online delivery orders and reducing public transport.
