The Secretary of Bali Covid-19 Handling Task Force, I Made Rentin, announced that the quarantine facility on the island was reopened due to the surge in Covid-19 cases.
“We agreed to reopen the quarantine facility in Bali during our last meeting,” Rentin said on Sunday (23/1).
The Head of the Denpasar Covid-19 Handling Task Force, I Dewa Gede Rai, confirmed that the city government’s Covid-19 quarantine facility had been officially operating since Sunday (23/1). “We already reopened one quarantine facility in Denpasar in anticipation of an increase in Covid-19 cases. We’ll keep observing the situation and open the other facilities if necessary,” Gede Rai said.
The government has prepared with additional anticipation steps such as :
- Optimizing the 3T program (Testing, Tracing, Treatment)
- Rapidly distributing the Covid-19 vaccine and booster
- Requiring all public facilities to utilize PeduliLindungi tracing app
- Preparing enough health facilities
- Regularly inspecting the implementation of prevention protocols in all public facilities
Gede Rai stated that the officials decided to close down quarantine facilities in the city three months ago as Covid-19 cases significantly declined.
However, Covid-19 transmission in Bali has seen a surge from the 20th to 22nd of January 2022, where the officials recorded daily cases of 43, 38, and 44, respectively.
