If You Do Not Wear a Mask in Indonesia You Will Be Digging Coronavirus Graves

From CTV News
Villagers who refuse to wear masks are being forced to dig graves for victims of COVID-19 by local authorities in one part of rural Indonesia, in the hopes that a little bit of manual labour and empathy will convince others to do their part to help stop the pandemic.

Three middle-aged men and five minors in Cerme district of Gresik Regency, East Java, were given the unique punishment on September 9, authorities said.

Though mask-wearing is mandatory in public throughout Indonesia, there has been a vocal segment of the population that has been reluctant to wear masks and practice social distancing.
