During his inspection, Jaya Negara was also accompanied by the Minister of Trade, M. Lutfi who was grateful that the central government has given maximum support to recover both the economy and health in Bali. Each Badung market visitor will be required to show proof of their Covid-19 vaccine certificate by scanning the QR code with the PeduliLindungi app on their cellphone in order to gain access into the market once the policy is fully implemented.“This implementation was initiated to ensure the safety of both vendors and visitors of the market as we have to start adapting to live with Covid-19 in the future.” Jaya Negara added.

What’s with persons who don’t have or can’t use smart phones.

Yeah great idea because the urban poor that primarily use traditional markets are all tech savvy to download Apps and all own expensive smart phones.

@Rich, don't generalize something you do not know of. Low income people are actually tech savvy in Indonesia and use the phones to connect with others since they may not have the luxury to own a laptop or an ipad notebook.

Many have to use the particular health and tracing app to enter a "mercado", a traditional market place these days.

Indonesia may be more advance with their communication devices and applications. But the internet speed could be way way better from experience.
