Covid-19 Tales (12)

The district head of Cerme in East Java, Suyono, has come up with a novel way of enforcing mask wearing in public. Eight people who refused to wear a mask have been made to dig graves at a public cemetery in Ngabetan village for victims of Covid-19.

Two people were assigned to each grave to help the gravediggers, one to dig the grave while the other placed wooden boards in the whole to support the corpse.

Mourners were doubtless relieved to learn that the mask refuseniks were not allowed to attend the funerals.
