  The Spokesman of the Denpasar Covid-19 Handling Task Force, I Dewa Gede Rai confirmed that Denpasar officials have recently closed three different quarantine facilities in Denpasar as Covid-19 transmission has significantly reduced in the last several weeks. “As Denpasar is considered a Covid-19 epidemiological orange zone, we decided to close 3 out of our 9 quarantine facilities.” Gede Rai said on Saturday (11/9).

Gede Rai explained that among the 6 quarantine facilities with the total capacity of 1,114 beds, only 35% of them are currently occupied. “From over 1,000 beds available in several different facilities across Denpasar to accommodate asymptomatic Covid-19 patients, only 388 of them are currently occupied, and that is considered pretty low.” Gede Rai added.

 He also plans to be more focused on using hotels in the Sanur area as quarantine facilities as Covid-19 cases keep on decreasing over time. “In order to reduce the working area of the Covid-19 Handling Task Force Officers, we plan to use 2 or 3 hotels in the Sanur area as quarantine facilities, so the mobility of our medical team and officers can be reduced as well.” Gede Rai concluded.
