Bali COVID-19 Handling Task Force recorded a significant increase in the recovery rate in Bali as of Saturday (6/2), with 384 patients having recovered in one day. At the same time, officials confirmed a decline in daily new cases, which had reduced to 139 patients in Denpasar on Saturday, from a previous 277 daily rate recorded several days ago.
According to the information from the Head of Bali COVID-19 Handling Task Force, Dewa Made Indra explained that Denpasar had the highest recovery rate with 139 patients recovered.
He believes the added safety measures and cooperation from authorities have helped control the spread of the virus.
He has been giving special attention to areas with high infection rates, by cooperating with the heads of each sub-district, in order to minimize the risk of spreading the virus to other areas.
Additionally, Indra also said that other regions have also contributed in helping the COVID-19 patients to recover, Badung with 97 recoveries, Gianyar with 44, Tabanan with 40, Buleleng with 27, Bangli with 15, Jembrana with 15, Klungkung with three, Karangasem with two and another two from outside of Bali.
As per to this data, the cumulative cases of COVID-19 in Bali as of Saturday (6/2) is 28,048, with 24,162 recovered, which calculates an 85.16 percent recovery rate.
However, Indra still advises the people of the importance of prevention protocols to avoid a surge, which led to problems like lack of isolation rooms at the start of 2021; nearly all hospitals and isolation buildings in Bali reached maximum capacity.
“People need to keep following the prevention protocols to reduce the risk of creating new clusters among the people and reduce the fatality rate from COVID-19 in Bali” Indra concluded.
