If the United States was serious about combatting COVID-19 such a program would be implemented here. But it isn't. Which is another reason why the United States has had the worst response in the world.

Local authorities in Indonesia ordered eight people who broke the country’s face mask laws to dig graves for COVID-19 victims, according to a report.

The province of East Java punished the mask violators with the manual labor at a local cemetery in hopes of deterring others from disregarding the nationwide face-covering mandate, the Jakarta Post reported.

“There are only three available gravediggers at the moment, so I thought I might as well put these people to work with them,” politician Suyono told local media, according to the paper.

“Hopefully this can create a deterrent effect against violations,” he added.
