Bogor Mayor Bima Arya to Keep Enforcing Odd-Even Policy on Weekends - Tempo.co English

Bogor Mayor Bima Arya to Keep Enforcing Odd-Even Policy on Weekends - Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, Bogor - Bogor Mayor Bima Arya is determined to continue enforcing the odd-even policy on weekends as it was considered effective in restricting the people’s mobility leading to a significant decrease in Covid-19 cases.

“We agree that the odd-even policy, inshallah, will be continued on weekends, Saturday and Sunday,” said Bima after a coordination meeting on Covid-19 handling with the Bogor Regional Leadership Communication Forum (Forkopimda) on Tuesday, February 16.

He added that the Bogor Forkopimda agreed to reimpose the traffic system on weekends and national holidays. “The odd-even policy will also be enforced on national holidays. We will evaluate it every two weeks,” said the mayor.

The restriction of vehicles entering the city on weekends through the traffic policy was considered fruitful. “The decline in the number of positive cases during the policy enforcement is the most significant one during the pandemic in Bogor,” Bima reported.

On February 6, 2021, Bogor recorded 187 new cases, while on February 15, the number of new infections dropped to 105.

The combination of the enforcement of community activity restriction on a micro-scale or Micro PPKM and the odd-even traffic policy showed a high level of effectiveness of the city’s efforts to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The data reveals that there is a significant drop in the number of vehicles entering Bogor City, and the most important thing is that the trend of new Covid-19 cases has also decreased strikingly,” said Bima Arya.

Bogor tightens traffic restrictions ahead of Chinese New Year long weekend - Coconuts Jakarta

Bogor tightens traffic restrictions ahead of Chinese New Year long weekend - Coconuts Jakarta

If you have plans to spend the Chinese New Year long weekend in Bogor, think again, as the city is intensifying the enforcement of its new odd-even traffic rule.

The Bogor city administration imposed the rule — which only allows cars with license plates ending with an even number to be driven in the city on even calendar dates and vice-versa for odd dates — starting on Feb. 4 and is effective every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 

The rule was designed to limit mobility in the city on weekends, as well as to discourage out-of-towners (read: Jakartans) from going on weekend getaways in the city, until at least Feb. 17 and may be extended if deemed necessary.

With the Chinese New Year long weekend coming up, Bogor Mayor Bima Arya said he’s bracing for a possible onslaught of holidaymakers coming into the city, which boasts a number of popular destinations for Jakarta tourists and is the entryway to the resort town of Puncak.

“This week there will be a long weekend due to the Lunar New Year on Friday. We have to optimize enforcement [of the odd-even rule],” Bima said.

Checkpoints will be set up at six entry points into the city.

Bima said enforcement of the rule last weekend led to a notable decrease of about 20,000 vehicles entering Bogor over two days.

Bogor Opts for Odd-Even Policy over Lockdown in Fight against COVID-19 - Tempo.co English

Bogor Opts for Odd-Even Policy over Lockdown in Fight against COVID-19 - Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Bogor City Government is set to impose the odd-even policy on all vehicles as an effort to curb rising COVID-19 cases in the region.

Bogor Deputy Mayor Dedie A. Rachim said the new policy was more ideal to be implemented than a regional quarantine or lockdown. “So we can control the pandemic while keeping the people's economy running,” Dedie told Tempo on Friday, February 5.

He reiterated that lockdown would not necessarily suppress the virus infection since the public compliance with the predetermined health protocols remained low. 

“We are focusing to enforce PPKM (community activity restrictions) and strengthen 3M (the health protocols) and 3T (testing, tracing, treatment), as well as optimizing micro-scale PPKM at RT and RW (the neighborhood and community units),” Dedie explained.

The combination of PPKM and the odd-even policy, he argued, was expected to foster public discipline so that the mobility could be controlled. However, the policy is exempted for those working in public services or essential sectors, such as the economy.

“Online taxis, freight vehicles, or cars transporting food to markets are not prohibited. They are allowed to run by showing evidence to officers stationed at the posts,” Dedie added.

The blockages will be carried out at six entry points of Bogor. Bogor City Police Chief Sr. Comr. Susatyo Purnomo Condro said his side would deploy 17 joint officers from the police, military, the transportation agency, and the Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) at each post.

“I emphasize that this is not an odd-even traffic policy, so there is no ticketing but rather sanctions of the health protocols,” said Susatyo.

Alleged Nazi Cemetery Long Existed in Megamendung, Bogor - Tempo.co English

Alleged Nazi Cemetery Long Existed in Megamendung, Bogor - Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A piece of land located in the area of Megamendung in the Bogor Regency is currently subject to conflict between state plantation holding PTPN and local land cultivators over legal right to cultivate (HGU) permit. Not many know that the land that had been nationalized by the government since 1958 is allegedly the final resting place of German nazi soldiers. 

Asked about the graveyard of the alleged Nazis, a local resident, Iwan Maulana, said on February 3, “No one knows since when [they were buried here] but each year large groups of Germans pay visit to this place.”

According to Iwan, the graveyard known locally as the ‘German cemetery’ is located in the bottom of Mount Pangrango in Sukaresi Village, Megamendung. There are visually 10 graves with the typical Nazi symbols with two bigger ones in the western area. 

According to local stories, Iwan said that the German soldiers had died at the area as there is a monument erected at the entrance of the cemetery and is written Deutscher Soldatenfriedhof or a memorial for the fallen German soldiers, so Iwan says. 

Another resident Tempo interviewed, Agus Mawardi, claims that the cemetery had existed in the location since Indonesia’s independence and claims that there were two German nationals in 1926 that had purchased the field there to be turned into a tea farm and used the area to bury the dead Germans during the war with the Dutch.
