Indonesia has granted the early release of 38,822 inmates as of April 20 amid the COVID-19 outbreak. The measure, however, only slightly lessens the burden on prisons – many of which are overcrowded and understaffed.

In Jakarta – the national epicenter of the virus, prisons are working to maintain the health of their staff and remaining inmates with help from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
