Remember the ‘ghost’ in Terengganu who scares kids into not leaving their houses? Well, the Indonesians have taken inspiration from that idea and some villagers have dressed up as pocongs to scare people into not leaving their houses. However, this scare may not be enough and they have now taken the full supernatural approach.
According to Suara Jawa Tengah, ever since the Covid-19 outbreak started there, people have been going back to their villages as they were scared of total lockdown. So when they reach their villages, they will need to sign an agreement at the anti-Covid-19 posts there which states that they will quarantine themselves at home for 14 days. If they violate it, then the villagers have the rights to take action.
So, there were two people who came back from the city to their village in Plupuh but halfway through, they gave up on their quarantine and went outside. The duo was then taken to a known haunted house in the paddy fields and was locked inside it.
The district head of the Sragen Regency said that she has given permission to several villages, allowing them to lock self-isolation violators into abandoned/haunted buildings, reported Jateng Tribun. These violators will be monitored and also fed but it is not known how long they have to stay there.
Officials have added that as there are no quarantine centres in the regency, so abandoned buildings will do.
That would be a seriously scary experience! Well, as for us Malaysians, we should continue to stay at home and stay safe!
