Indonesia detains violators of COVID-19 quarantine in a “haunted house”

DUE to the annoyance with people who violate the quarantine virus policy, an Indonesian official decides to intimidate violators by confining them in a “haunted house.”


Sragen regency head Kusdinar Untung Yuni Sukowati issued an unusual order to deal with the flow of people in the area after implementing lockdowns in Jakarta’s capital and other major cities.


Sukowati commissioned communities to use abandoned ghost homes.



Five people were placed in Sragen’s haunted jail.


“If there’s an empty and haunted house in the village, put people in there and lock them up,” said Sukowati.


Sepat Village officials chose a long-abandoned house and they outfitted it with beds with curtains separating them.


So far, three residents have been detained in the house where they will spend two weeks quarantine.
