Anyone Refusing To Wear A Mask Is Made To Dig Graves For Covid-19 Victims As Punishment In East Java

Face mask rebels in east Java have been ordered to dig graves for coronavirus victims as punishment.

As of Tuesday 29 September, 2020, Indonesia has recorded 282,724 coronavirus cases and 10,601 deaths.

Eight people who refused to wear face masks in Gresik regency were made to dig graves at a public cemetery in Ngabetan village.

The people being punished did not participate in funeral services but two were assigned to dig each grave.

Cerme district head Suyono said: ‘There are only three available grave diggers at the moment, so I thought I might as well put these people to work with them.
