The Indonesian Authorities Monday closed the country’s capital Jakarta due to the massive growth of the number infected with the coronavirus. According to the Governor of the neighboring province of West Java Ridvan Camille last weekend, the police conducted an exercise to limit traffic. They put cordons at the entrance to the city. R. Camille said that, apart from the capital, a quarantine administered in provinces with a rapidly increasing number of infected people.

Jakarta has become the epicenter of the spread of the novel coronavirus. There are 675 infected, which accounted for more than half of all cases in Indonesia. Currently, the country has 1.3 million infected people; 114 people died, 60 people recovered.
