According to Bali officials, each holiday has seen an increase in Covid-19 cases.

Secretary of the Bali Covid-19 Task Force, Made Rentin, said the curfew was implemented because crowds of people often occur at night.

The curfew has been implemented to help reduce the spread of infection as residents look to ring in the New Year on the island.

The Joint Team for Healthcare Enforcement which includes army and police said that the majority of crowds form later at night which contributes to the spread of Covid-19. 

Yesterday the Provincial Government also made the announcement that access to Bali’s Beaches will be banned for New Years Eve
