JAKARTA (The Jakarta Post/ANN): Indonesia plans to impose stricter restrictions starting on Wednesday (June 30), as South-east Asia's most populous country battles a second wave of coronavirus infections driven by the more transmissible Delta variant.

President Joko Widodo will lead an internal meeting on Tuesday (June 29) to discuss details of the planned new measure, called Pemberlakuan Pembatasan Kegiatan Masyarakat (PPKM) Darurat, or emergency public activity restrictions, according to two senior government officials and a lawmaker who spoke on condition of anonymity.
