Klungkung Police Department handed out free rice packages (nasi jinggo) and face masks during the operation on Wednesday (3/3). The initiative aimed to raise awareness and compliance of residents while helping the community during the pandemic.
The program on Catus Pata, Klungkung District was initiated by police as support to affected residents and tourism workers during the pandemic.
The Deputy Chief of Klungkung Police Department, Kompol Luh Ketut Amy Ramayanthi Prakasa said that it was also an opportunity to educate people and raise their compliance to prevention protocols.
“We handed out around 50 packages of rice and masks to bypassers around Catus Pata area on Wednesday morning,” said Kompol Ramayanthi.
She explained that people need to be educated in order to raise their awareness of this pandemic, as some people are still reluctant to comply with the mask-wearing policy in public places.
“People are probably tired of this situation, and start to neglect the protocols sometimes. And our duty is to remind them and keep educating them to end this pandemic together,” Kompol Ramayanthi added.
She urged the people to take care of each other by following the rules as they might carry the virus to someone who is vulnerable, especially the one who has some congenital diseases.
“I hope these masks could prevent creating another transmission in Klungkung area, and make this place free from Covid-19” Ramayanthi concluded.
Meanwhile, the officials of Klungkung District are currently running the vaccination program targeting tourism workers, the elderly, and government officials.
