Indonesian police say” By showing these ghosts and coffins, people should understand that coronavirus still exists. They need to be careful especially while going out of their houses.”
“The dressed-up ghosts illustrate Covid-19 victims. What we are doing is an education on Covid-19 protocols. We want to show the public how you could end up if you aren’t following the health protocols,” said Traffic police officer Saiful Ilmi.
