The Head of Bali Covid-19 Handling Task Force, Dewa Made Indra, admitted that the influx of domestic tourists during this holiday season does not have a direct correlation to the increase of cases in Bali.

According to data, out of the 112 new cases on Friday, 109 spread through local transmission, while three spread from domestic tourists.

The total active cases as of today are 980, which are currently being treated in 17 different hospitals and several quarantine houses across Bali” Made Indra said on Friday (25/12).

“Neglecting protocols in public areas will result in a USD 7 (IDR 100,000) fine for individuals, and USD 70 (IDR 1 million) for corporates. Made Indra added.

He said that the recuperation of health will be the starting point of economic recovery from this crisis.

The tourism industry in Bali has been impacted most financially, primarily since the central government decided to close the travel corridor to international tourists.
