, Jakarta - Head of the DKI Jakarta Transportation Agency, Syafrin Liputo, said that one of the reasons for the re-implementation of the odd even road is because of the emergence of the Covid-19 cluster in offices.

"So one of them, of course, was mentioned because of the increasing number of transmission clusters in offices and other clusters," Syafrin said when met in the HI Roundabout area, Central Jakarta, Sunday, August 2, 2020.

Syafrin said that to reduce the transmission rate, the DKI Government decided to re-apply the even odd number as one of the emergency breaks or the PSSB transition emergency brakes was to limit the mobility of citizens.

Syafrin asked the office or worker to arrange work schedules from home based on the vehicle police number, for those who have odd numbers expected on the odd date of work from home. He reminded that in implementing the PSBB 50 percent of workers were still employed from home.

This said Syafrin was also based on the amount of traffic density of vehicles that had exceeded normal limits at several points. He assumed on Jalan Sudirman the Senayan area the average number of vehicles that passed before Covid-19 was around 127 thousand vehicles a day, but now it has reached 145 thousand vehicles a day.

Then on Cipete Street, South Jakarta, the average number of vehicles that passes is around 74 thousand vehicles a day, whereas currently it has reached 75 thousand per day. "So at this time the traffic density in a number of points is above the normal average," said Syafrin.

Based on data from the National Covid-19 Handling Task Force Task Force as of July 29, 2020, there are 90 office clusters in DKI Jakarta. Of these, the task force noted there were 459 cases of Covid. From the data collected, the cluster spread of Covid-19 cases in offices is quite diverse. Among the ministries, agencies or institutions, offices within the government, police, BUMN, and private sector.
