Share The Article

A national tourism analyst, Taufan Rahmadi proposed the central government to implement a total lockdown in all Bali regions.

Taufan explained that a major step is required to be taken in order to revive the tourism sector in Bali from the crisis since the Covid-19 pandemic struck over a year ago. He also urged the Indonesian government to learn from other countries such as New Zealand about how they’re handling the Covid-19 pandemic and allegedly saving their economy from permanent damage.

“I think the first phase of saving the tourism sector from further damage from the pandemic is 14 days of total lockdown in all Bali regions.” Taufan said on Monday (28/6). He also said that strict prevention protocols such as self-isolation, work from home programs and closing down all public facilities from operating must be implemented and constantly monitored during the implementation.

After 14 days of lockdown, Taufan asked the provincial government to rapid antigen test all Bali residents before finally reopening all public facilities and offices to operate normally. “After testing all the residents once the lockdown ends, the government could consider reopening the border to both domestic and international visitors in order to avoid further damage to Bali’s economy in the future.” Taufan concluded. He also reminds the government that the plan to postpone the international travel arrangement is predicted to give a bigger impact to the dying economy in Bali.

Finally, the administration is developing a realistic strategy under no delusion or influence of the Ubud Billionaires, Beer Barons and Hotel Moguls who see only dollar signs over safety. It’s medical imperative to lockdown Bali, including the removal of all resident foreigners. Close Bali for at least five years, let it renew and heal.

like the Nyepi (silence day) in Bali, which means to maintain the balance of Bhuana Agung and Bhuana Alit or the meeting point of negative and positive traits, to be introspective, reflect for a moment with what we have done. In the past, now and planning better in the future, it is very appropriate to implement a total lockdown, to reset the life in Bali. all parties must support.
