A number of people who violate the health protocol to prevent COVID-19 have received various sanctions.
Starting from fines, singing, dancing, push-ups to entering the coffin.
Epidemiology expert from Airlangga University (Unair) Surabaya, Dr. Windhu Purnomo, said the sanctions such as rocking to singing that were applied in a number of areas were ineffective.
In fact, it is considered as a joke by the offender.
Even though he said the justisi operation was good and quite effective, Windhu suggested giving a stricter punishment and deterring the community so that the operation would be more effective.
On the same occasion, Windhu also highlighted the punishment of putting health protocol violators into the coffin and being carried.
According to him this is only like a joke.
Meanwhile, for the stipulated fines, Windhu said this was good enough to deter the public.
However, if the community cannot pay, it must be replaced with a more deterrent punishment.
