The Spokesman of the Denpasar Covid-19 Handling Task Force, I Dewa Gede Rai confirmed that the Covid-19 recovery rate in Denpasar is surging. “We recorded the highest amount of recoveries from Covid in Denpasar on Friday (16/4), with 163 recoveries in one day.” Gede Rai said on Friday (16/4). But he also assured that it didn’t trigger them to lower their standards in enforcing prevention protocols as Covid-19 transmissions still continue to spread.
“Apart from the recovery rate, we also had 65 new Covid cases and 2 deaths on the same day, so we still need to pay serious attention to this.” Gede Rai added. The Task Force received word of the death of two senior citizens who lived in Penatih and Sumerta Kaja village. He reminds the people to keep complying with the prevention protocols despite the leniency of the partial lockdown implementation where people are now allowed to do some activities at their offices, public places and even hold some events.
The accumulated Covid cases in Denpasar as of Friday (16/4) is 13,445 cases with 12,397 recoveries (92.21 %), 282 deaths (2.09 %) and 766 (5.7 %) are still being treated. Gede Rai is also committed to motivating the team to keep enforcing the protocols, educating and disinfecting public areas as well as distributing the Covid-19 vaccine as an effort to reduce Covid-19 transmission in his area. “I urge people to implement strict prevention protocols even in their homes and ask them to support the vaccination program in their area.” Gede Rai concluded.
