My guess after seeing the posts that it is the Ivermectin that is pulling the numbers down. The posts about it have increased by 300-400% over a month ago. 🙏🏻

@Mike A, The FDA has not approved ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19, but the vaccines have been proven to reduce the risk of serious illness or death dramatically. 

Ivermectin is used in animals such as cows and horses to prevent heartworm disease and certain internal and external parasites.

The Balinese authorities initiated lockdowns, agressive vaccination program and quarantine facilities and as a result infections have been reduced. The concept works but not out of the woods yet.
