Joint officers directed motorists to turn back during the implementation of the emergency Community Activity Blocking (PPKM) at the entrance to the West Bekasi Toll Road, Bekasi, West Java, on Friday (16/7/2021).

The decision to extend the emergency public activity restrictions (PPKM Darurat) for the next five days has triggered new questions. Could such a short period reduce the high transmission rate?

Emergency public activity restrictions (PPKM Darurat) were originally slated to end on July 20. But after almost three weeks, the transmission rate was still very high.
