Efektifitas PSBB dalam Menekan Penyebaran Covid-19 di Indonesia

PSBB, singkatan dari ‘pembatasan sosial berskala besar’, diberlakukan di Indonesia dalam upaya menekan penyebaran Covid-19. Pemerintah memilih PSBB atau pembatasan sosial berskala besar sebagai alternatif dari kuncitara yang dipandang dapat menghambat perputaran ekonomi masyarakat.

Dalam PSBB, pergerakan masyarakat dibatasi namun tidak sepenuhnya terbatas seperti halnya dalam kuncitara. Masyarakat dapat tetap keluar dari rumah jika itu beralasan logis - misalnya untuk membeli kebutuhan sehari-hari dan untuk bekerja diluar rumah. Selain itu, tidak diberlakukan jam malam dalam PSBB.

Sejauh ini, kebijakan PSBB berhasil menunjukkan kemajuan signifikan. Sejak PSBB diberlakukan pemerintah, peningkatan penyebaran Covid-19 tetap ada namun tidak signifikan.

English Version of the Passage

PSBB, short for 'large-scale social restrictions', was imposed in Indonesia as an effort to suppress the spread of Covid-19. The government chose PSBB or large-scale social restrictions as an alternative to lockdown which was seen as barrier which hamper the economic turnover of society.

In PSBB, the movement of the community is restricted but not completely restricted as in lockdown. People can stay out of the house if it has logical reasons - for example to buy groceries and to work outside the home. In addition, there is no curfew in the PSBB.

So far, PSBB has shown significant progress. Since the PSBB was implemented by the government, the increase in the spread of Covid-19 has remained but not significant.
