Officials from the Buleleng, Bali Covid-19 Handling Task Force have began spraying disinfectant in several public areas in anticipation of the third wave of Covid-19 transmission fueled by the new Omicron variant.
The Spokesman of the Buleleng Covid-19 Handling Task Force, Ketut Suwarmawan confirmed that a program to regularly disinfecting public places in the Buleleng area has been recently reactivated. The disinfecting has been put in place to help prevent another spike of Covid-19 infections as cases continue to skyrocket in several European and African countries.
“Despite the reducing Covid-19 transmission in Buleleng, we have decided to reactivate this program as a prevention step in anticipation of a third wave which will put our economy into a deeper crisis, especially with the upcoming year-end holiday season when a surge in domestic visitors is expected.” Suwarmawan added.
Suwarmawan is also reminding people to comply with prevention protocols such as physical distancing, sanitizing hands and wearing facemasks in public places.
“This Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet, so we’ll do our best to anticipate a surge in cases” Suwarmawan concluded.
