Jakarta, a coronavirus epicenter in Indonesia, braces for quarantine

first_imgIf a regional quarantine is enacted, the police will turn back those trying to enter or leave the city.”We have not ruled out the possibility [of a local quarantine], but the decision depends on the leaders,” Budi told The Jakarta Post on Sunday. “We are only acting as the implementer who creates the standard operating procedures and [plans] on what the protocol will look like.”The government has struggled to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the past three months. Insufficient medical supplies and concerns over unrest have prevented President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo from imposing lockdown in Jakarta and other provinces while limiting information about cases and deaths.  As cases passed 1,200 on Sunday, with 114 deaths, including medical workers and more discovered outside Jakarta, local administrations have started to take their own initiatives to protect their residents from the outbreak, especially those traveling from Greater Jakarta.   –Riza Roidila Mufti and Sausan Atika from Jakarta and Arya Dipa from Bandung contributed to this story.Topics : The government has already issued a warning discouraging people living in Greater Jakarta from leaving the city for their hometowns for the Idul Fitri mudik (exodus).However, many have ignored the warning. Central Java, for example, has reported thousands of mudik travelers arriving in the province, including in Jepara with 1,776 arrivals, Purwokerto with 2,323 and Wonogiri with 2,625 as of Tuesday.Central Java has reported 63 confirmed COVID-19 cases and seven deaths as of Saturday, the fifth-highest number of cases of the country’s 34 provinces.The Tegal administration has announced that it would close road access around the city for four months after one resident tested positive.Provincial administrations in Maluku and Papua have restricted entry through air and water ports to prevent further transmission in the provinces.Jakarta is increasingly considered the epicenter of the virus in Indonesia, recording 675 cases with 68 deaths, more than any other province.West Java and Banten, provinces directly linked to the capital, are the second- and third-worst hit regions with 149 and 106 cases, respectively.While the government has revealed almost nothing about the patients and their travel records, several patients that have been reported in Central Java and other areas have a history of traveling to Jakarta and its neighboring cities.   “After the meeting [on Monday], I do not know whether it will still be a stronger warning or a complete ban. It depends on Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Panjaitan,” Budi said.Budi told reporters during an online press briefing on Friday that his ministry was ready to close the entrances to Greater Jakarta and other national roads. However, he said he had no knowledge about when the decision would be made.The Post has obtained a copy of a classified Jakarta Police telegram, dated March 28, ordering the closure of the city’s main roads.Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Yusri Yunus did not deny the authenticity of the telegram but said that the police were merely training for the possibility of a local quarantine.”We are still implementing physical distancing and social distancing, because there have yet to be any government regulations [requiring quarantine],” Yusri told the Post on Sunday.Medical experts and COVID-19 volunteers have called on the government to implement local quarantines in virus-stricken areas such as Greater Jakarta. They say the government’s policy of physical distancing is not sufficient to contain the spread of the disease.The 2018 Health Quarantine Law stipulates that during public health emergencies, the central government can impose “regional quarantines” on areas that experience an outbreak of a disease.West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil has banned anyone from leaving or entering the province for mudik or traveling between cities and regencies in the province.“Anyone who insists on traveling for mudik will directly be placed under surveillance,” he said, explaining that these people would have to self-isolate for 14 days or face police detention.The country’s most populous province of 48.6 million has conducted mass testing among targeted groups, along with Jakarta and East Java, the province with fourth-largest number of cases in the country. (dfr)center_img While local administrations have begun to block road access into their areas in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, the government has prepared to quarantine the country’s capital, which has been most affected by the disease.The Transportation Ministry is preparing a scenario for a local quarantine in Greater Jakarta to slow the spread of COVID-19, depending on a decision expected to be made at a Cabinet meeting scheduled for Monday, a ministry official said.Transportation Ministry land transportation director general Budi Setyadi said the ministry, in coordination with the National Police’s traffic corps, had developed a plan including “stopping posts” at toll gates and along other roads to and from Greater Jakarta.last_img read more

Scientific Beta criticises MSCI weapon exclusion comments

first_imgSSF’s open letter to index providersIn a letter to the president of SSF, Amenc noted that many other index providers also argued that a broad cap-weighted index could not contain an ESG filter by default.MSCI declined to comment on Scientific Beta’s press release. SSF is in the process of engaging with the large index providers.The SSF investor campaign continues to gain backers, with the CHF8bn (€7bn) Swiss pension fund Profond among recent signatories of the open letter to index providers. The chief executive of index provider Scientific Beta has described as “inadmissible” arguments made by MSCI in response to a call from investors for index providers to exclude controversial weapon manufacturers from their mainstream indices.In a press release, Noël Amenc said there were “no practical or academic grounds for the idea that a broad cap-weighted index representing all investment opportunities cannot as a result contain an ESG filter by default”.The weight of the exclusions proposed by Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF) – the organisation co-ordinating the investor campaign – was far lower than the exclusions or weight limitations implemented by all index providers to guarantee the liquidity and investability of their global market capitalisation-weighted indices, said Amenc.In addition, he said, excluding stocks linked to controversial weapons would not significantly affect the weighted average market performance provided by cap-weighted indices. Scientific Beta was of the view that “promoting an opt-in option that corresponds to a paid service falls short of what is at stake with this exclusion from an ethical and humanitarian standpoint”.center_img Noël Amenc, Scientific Beta CEOIts statement continued: “Ultimately… MSCI’s response is representative of the attitude of a large share of the players in the index industry who consider that ESG is a good business opportunity rather than an opportunity to do good.”The smart beta index provider indicated that, from June, it would offer all clients indices with “minimal exclusions”, and that it would also consult with clients about making these exclusions the default choice, with an opt-out approach.Amenc was responding to MSCI comments reported by IPE last month, after SSF published an open letter to index providers in several newspapers.last_img read more

You can automatically qualify as one of the top two teams from each of the four regionals, or mark the lowest scores of the five individuals not on those teams.Overall, Wellington accumulated a 378, placing sixth as a team out of 10 teams present.Rose Hill won the tournament with a 314. Wichita Trinity edged out Andale for second by one stroke: 322 to 323. Other team scores included Augusta 326, Mulvane 370, Winfield 389, Circle 391, El Dorado 395, and Clearwater, who brought two golfers.Rose Hill’s Parker Austin, the son of PGA golfer Woody Austin, was the tournament’s top golfer with a 73 edging out Jordan Anderson of Andale who shot 74.The tournament was a bit of a Who’s Who event. Wichita State University head coach Gregg Marshall was in attendance as his son played for Trinity. Kellen Marshall shot an 82.As for Wellington, the very young golf team made up almost entirely of freshmen and sophomores, had a good day.Freshman Ty Wilson had a good day, shooting in single digits including a 44 on the front nine.Ty Wilson shot a 94. Carson LeGrand shot a 100 and Jonah Luna 101 to close out the team scoring. Other Wellington scorers included Aaron Schoemann with a 103 and Skyler Crittenden with a 107.“It was a good year and I look forward to our young men and the success we will have in the future,” said Wellington head golf coach James Ginter.As for DeJarnett, his state qualification came as a bit of a surprise after he was convinced he hadn’t made it right after playing.“I really didn’t play well at all,” DeJarnett said, after shooting 18 holes and before the tallies for the tournament were made. “My shoulder was really bothering me. I didn’t do well on my short game.”But DeJarnett was consistent, shooting a 41 on the front nine and 42 on the back. His best hole of the day was a birdie on Hole #3.Overall, the weather was nice if not a bit blustery especially in the morning. Only three golfers shot in the 70s.Carson LeGrand, a sophomore, eyes sinking a putt on hole #18For more pictures click here.Team results:  7thWinfield389 40Jonah LunaWellington5767556855444745764647101 21Irvin SchuellerAndale345544564406474555544585 5thMulvane370 6thWellington378 11th00 13Peyton AustinRose Hill855554445454363446443883 10thClearwaterNA NUESSON – AUGUSTA – 81last_img read more
