Indonesia’s transportation minister said Wednesday that as many as 18.9 million people or 7% of the total population would insist on heading for their hometowns for the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday, defying a coronavirus-related ban. Budi Karya Sumadi cited a recent survey which found that travelers intended to take part in the homecoming exodus, locally called mudik, before the ban is imposed from May 6-17. According to the Indonesian Railways Company (PT KAI), 15,000 passengers left the capital Jakarta today. During the same period, around 130,000 vehicles left the greater Jakarta area, with the majority of travelers heading towards Central Java, East Java and West Java. West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil said travelers who go early for the homecoming would be asked to self-quarantine. Operation Ketupat Jaya 2021 is being conducted to block access to and from the greater Jakarta area to maintain security and to monitor the implementation of health protocols.
