A video of a local from Denpasar went viral after he questioned the government on a loudspeaker in the middle of an intersection. President Joko Widodo has recently stated that the partial lockdown currently implemented in Java and Bali is deemed ineffective in reducing COVID-19 cases in the regions, especially Bali.
As a city strictly implementing the partial lockdown, Denpasar recorded a significant number of new cases during the event.
While the government continues to extend the partial lockdown, residents have started to question the government’s regulations as small businesses have been deeply affected by the curfew.
Many have voiced concern on social media. A video of a local from Denpasar went viral on social media after he questioned the government on a mic in the middle of a busy intersection. The video was uploaded on a social media account, Dodechanel.
“We agreed with all prevention protocols, but the government also needs to hear our voice when we complain about their policies,” Dode said.
He added that many people are struggling to sustain their businesses due to the 8:00pm curfew which for many people is considered too early.
“On behalf of the people I urge the provincial government to provide a win-win solution for their people, especially since the tourism sector has been affected by the pandemic, causing many people to become unable to pay school tuition fees and other basic needs.” said Dode.
The video has received massive response from supporters as it represented the voice of many people in Bali.
