Most Of Bali Market Visitors Are Unwilling To Use The PeduliLindungi Tracing App

Share The Article

Officials have admitted that the majority of Klungkung Traditional Market visitors are still unwilling to utilize the PeduliLindungi tracing app before entering the market area.

The Head of the Technical Unit from Klungkung Traditional Market, I Komang Sugianta confirmed that the implementation of the PeduliLindungi tracing app as an entry requirement for the Klungkung Market is still far from his expectations. “The majority of the market’s visitors are still reluctant to scan the QR code using their PeduliLindungi tracing app before entering the market,” Sugianta said on Thursday (4/11).

He explained that despite installing the QR codes on several market entrances, most visitors still decide to ignore them and enter the market without utilizing the tracing app. However, Sugianta admitted that he has been struggling to supervise the implementation of this policy due to a lack of human resources, as there are no officers who constantly monitor the market areas.

Nevertheless, Sugianta ensured that both the visitors and all of the market vendors have been complying with the prevention protocols since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in 2020, despite their reluctance to utilize the tracing app. “We’ve been reminding the community to always wear their face masks and keep a safe distance between each other to prevent virus transmission,” Sugianta concluded.

the government should also provide its phones free of charge instead of forcing them to install the app on personal devices.

We will return to Bali only when the quarantine time is abolished. I won’t waste money to sit in a hotel room and not be allowed out. It’s a shame because the Balinese people are suffering with having no tourists.

@Sandi Smith, I agree 100%. Not going until Quarantine lifted.

I have downloaded the app (ready for our trip next year) but it will not accept our Australian vaccination certificates etc and also some if not most of the information is in Indonesian.

Isn’t it kind of like having someone spy on you in the bathroom? Totally weird. No wonder it’s not popular.

@J West, no. Been doing it for months in Sbya. It's no problem.
