Bali’s discovery postponed: a new wave of disease on the island

The Indonesian government has decided to wait for the incidence to decrease, as it is risky to open Bali to foreign travelers for now.

This was stated by the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of Indonesia Sandiaga Uno.

The minister explained that it is necessary that at least 30-40 new cases of infection be recorded on the island before opening the island to foreign tourists. Over the past month, Indonesia has seen an increase in the spread of COVID-19. In Bali alone, about 200 new cases are recorded per day.

At the same time, 71% of local people have already received the first dose of the vaccine. The authorities plan to fully vaccinate 70% of Bali residents by the end of July, which could speed up the island’s opening to tourists.

“We are targeting the end of July – beginning of August, but we must be mindful of the coronavirus outbreak. We will wait until the situation becomes more favorable, “- said Sandiaga Uno.

According to Reuters

We will also remind that the Turkish government is suspending flights with six countries in which a new strain of COVID-19 has been identified.
