The Head of The National Covid-19 Handling Task Force, Lieutenant General of Military, Doni Monardo has urged the Governor of Bali to regulate a quarantine policy for both domestic and international visitors.

This idea was proposed by Doni during a closed meeting that was held at the Governor’s office in Denpasar on Thursday (1/4). He also proposed the governor create a special team to handle the quarantine program in Bali. “I proposed this program to the governor, and I hope he will create a special team that consists of Military and Police officers to handle the program.” Doni said on Friday (2/4).

Doni explained that the program was initiated to support the central government’s efforts in reducing Covid transmissions across the nation. It could also be a prevention step to avoid the transmission of the new variant of Covid-19 that was recently found in England, especially during the upcoming holiday season in May 2021 where the influx of domestic visitors are expected to arrive. “The governor needs to anticipate the massive influx of domestic visitors in May that could potentially increase Covid transmissions on the island.” Doni added.

Doni hopes that this program will help Bali to avoid an increase of transmissions and eventually bring back the tourism that has been devastated by the pandemic. “Bali is facing a major crisis from this pandemic, so I hope this will bring a positive impact in the future and the Bali economy will eventually recover when the border reopens.” Doni concluded.
