Businesses feel the crunch as Jakarta enters second lockdown

Shuttered stores in a shopping centre as a partial lockdown took effect from Monday. Jakarta's tightened social restrictions - for two weeks - mean businesses, malls and houses of worship can only operate at limited capacity, while dining in at restaurants and cafes is not allowed.
THE markings of a rollercoaster year are plastered over Sutiwet's small Jakarta restaurant - plastic barriers on the counters, stickers on the glass urging customers to wear masks, and a gallon of water out front for people to wash their hands.
