The new Corona Virus (Sars-CoV-2) in Bali

The world has been hit by the new Corona Virus and it has also affected Indonesia and Bali. We will post the latest updates on the development and corona situation in Bali. There are two main goals for the Indonesian government: one, to stop the virus from spreading. This is done by enforcing “Social Distancing” rules, educating the public about the disease, and wearing the masks. Second, to manage the health care system and underlying logistics to cope with the current situation and any potential increase or second wave. Of course corona had a massive impact on tourism and therefore on the lives of the Balinese, therefore the government is working hard to find a way to jumpstart the economy again.

Corona Facts vs Myths from the WHO

Corona Prevention Measures


Current Situation in Bali. Is it ok traveling to Bali? Is Bali Safe?

SITUATION IN BALI:

  • Situation in Bali is very much controlled. The numbers had been considerably low compared to other areas in the country, even worldwide
  • Most travelers have left Bali. There are no international tourists at the moment
  • Indonesia has banned all foreign arrivals until further notice
  • All citizens and visitors are asked to stay at home, work from home and follow the guidelines of "SOCIAL DISTANCING".
  • Food shopping and other important necessities are still possible (not a lock down)
  • A decent amount of restaurants, bars and hotels have opened again
  • Major events have been cancelled and the governor has instructed the Balinese to stay away from mass events (religions and non-religious).
  • Tourist attractions and beaches that had been closed are opening gradually
  • Thousands of Balinese lost their jobs and businesses start to go bankrupt without ANY income. Personal hardship for the Balinese is very high
HEALTH RISK:
Once Bali is open again for tourism, the risk to get infected in Bali might be as low or high as in any other place in the world. Indonesian authorities and particularly the ones in Bali have shown that they take the situation very seriously, and did shut down quickly bars and clubs, that did not enforce the safety regulations enough, or where the guests lacked discipline. 

Bali is an “outdoor place”. The majority of restaurants in Bali are semi or even full open air venues.  People are rarely indoors or in areas where there is no ventilation and fresh air. The virus is airborne and studies showed, that most mass-spreading happened in closed environments. Even during mass events and demonstrations that happened outdoor, no significant increase of infections have been reported.
