He also explained that almost three million of Bali residents have received the Covid-19 vaccine. “A total of 2,958,350 Bali residents have received the Covid-19 vaccine, and that number is a combination between the people who have received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine and those who have completed the second dose of vaccination.” Rentin added.

Meanwhile Java and Sumatra are seeing rising cases partly due to the End of the fasting month in May with people traveling en masse. Government has warned citizens not to travel home and check points were set up. However that did not discourage anyone to skip town for the long holiday.

The central government and local administrative counties have been able in controlling the outbreak and maintaining the health care system from collapsing in the past year. The health care workers have worked tirelessly to help covid-19 patients during the past year. Kudos to them.

It is actually the fault of the people who were not disciplined nor have any sort of care to protect themselves around others. People are selfish!! Don't they understand that the delta variant and Indian variant are more contagious and easily spread indiscriminately. Those affected by covid-19 will fill up hospitals and quarantine facilities all over again.

Furthermore people who have been vaccinated must follow the same health protocols as if you have not been vaccinated at all. We are all NOT out of the woods yet.

@Sam, "people who have been vaccinated must follow the same health protocols as if you have not been vaccinated at all" ... well said Sam! That is exactly right! Being vaccinated doesn't mean that people are protected from the virus. Vaccinated people can and will still catch COVID if they encounter the virus. Plus not to mention that the efficacy of the vaccines isn't 100% nor is it guaranteed nor is it a magical shield that protects people completely from the virus. Until there is no more evidence of the virus being out in the community in any country, then and only then can we say its over and can do away with masks, distancing etc etc.

What a nonsense. On Sunday June 13 the number of deaths was 3 not 0. And using 1st shots in the total of "vaccinated" people is also completely misleading. Only 15% of the total population in Bali or 22% of the 3 million people targeted in the vaccination program are fully vaccinated. That's a good achievement but far from being enough for some sort of "herd immunity".

@Josh, just imagine that only about 1% of Japanese population is vaccinated until now.

@Josh, I suppose this is the case because a period of 6 weeks between shots is required? This will delay the number of fully vaccinated, but not by a long time (provided there is enough vaccine).
