Bali COVID-19 Handling Task Force has announced that virus transmission on the island has significantly declined since the partial lockdown took effect. Accordingly, Bali is moving closer to its goal of restarting international travel.
The Head of Bali Covid-19 Handling Task Force, Dewa Made Indra, informed a decrease in transmission and increasing recovery rates.
“The daily new transmission on Monday was 167 cases. A huge improvement as our previous average was more than 200 cases each day,” Made Indra said on Tuesday (2/3).
Additionally, the total cumulative COVID-19 cases in Bali is 34,699 cases, with 31,643 recoveries (91,19%) and 939 deaths (2,71%). The current cases as of Monday are 2,117 cases (6,10%).
Based on this data, Made Indra is optimistic that the border would reopen soon, especially with the vaccination program targeting the tourism workers.
Meanwhile, the community-based partial lockdown continues to be implemented in most areas in Bali until at least March 8.
“The government initiated this partial lockdown to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission on the island to accelerate the COVID-19 Green Zone, so our economy will recover from the crisis as soon as possible,” Made Indra concluded.
He urged the people always to carry out prevention protocols in public areas to avoid creating a crowd leading to transmission.
