As The Bali Sun previously reported the central government decided to implement this travel ban policy to prevent a surge of Covid-19 cases during the holiday season, especially when the preparation of reopening the international travel corridor is in its final stages. Kombes Pol Rudy also explained that the officers are prepared with 381 different guard houses that are spread out to ensure that no one can travel while the ban is in place.

Meanwhile, The Head of the Indonesian Police Department, General Listyo Sigit Prabowo stated that the travel ban policy was implemented to reduce Covid-19 transmission, especially to senior citizens who have higher risk of having stronger symptoms once they are infected. “I just hope that the people can understand the current situation that we’re facing. This policy was made to protect our people, especially the senior citizens, so the mortality rate from Covid-19 could be reduced.” General Listyo concluded.
