Just to rub salt into into the Balinese people wounds the Governor wins an award for doing a great job throughout the pandemic what a disgrace he has sat back and watch unfold the biggest disaster to effect the Balinese people in their lifetime. This pandemic is no where near finished especially now with this new variant you should hand back the award until you have done the job properly then you can claim to have done the right thing for your people and receive the award.
