The government stated that the sanctions for revoking business licenses and fines for those who did not implement the Care for Protection were steps to prevent the spread of Covid-19 cases.

However, the epidemiologist said that the Cares for Protection Application did not have much benefit for controlling Covid-19 cases because the data was not real. Meanwhile, health policy observers say this application will only show a social gap because not all people can access it.

On the other hand, the shopping center association is worried that this regulatory sanction will apply differently in each region and will cause problems in the field. Meanwhile, micro business actors reacted in fear of being affected by regulations called “complicated”.
