The Indonesian capital of Jakarta, hardest hit by the COVID-19 outbreak, on Tuesday decided to prolong a large-scale social restriction as the number of virus infections spikes in the country.

Jakarta’s governor Anies Baswedan announced that the partial lockdown would be extended for another 14 days until June 4.

The governor urged the citizens to obey the rules to rein the virus spread in the capital of over 10 million people.
