JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The Bali tourism sector remains closed as the Island of the Gods focuses on mitigating the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bali has been relatively spared from the worst of the Covid-19 virus infections, but the island has yet to lower the number of infections.

The local government has expressed its commitment to mitigating the spread of infection first before considering plans on kickstarting Bali tourism plans.

“Up to today, we are still managing the Covid-19 virus until there is a definite decline in the number of infections. Deciding on when tourism in Bali will open is dependent on developments regarding the pandemic,” explained Head of the Bali’s Tourism Office, Putu Astawa.

He added, “Bali Governor I Wayan Koster is extremely cautious to prevent a second wave of infections that could create an even worse impact.”

Based on data from the National Covid-19 Task Force, Bali has 723 confirmed Covid-19 cases including 6 reported deaths and 462 recovery cases.

The numbers are relatively low in comparison to Covid-19 total cases in the provinces of Jakarta and East Java who take the lead respectively.
