Corona Prevention in Bali | covid-19

Simple Measures

  • SOCIAL DISTANCING (1.5m distance, no handshakes, don't attend events, parties, any gatherings), only go out if really necessary
  • Wash hands 20+secs with soap or use alcohol based products
  • don't touch your mouth, nose eyes
  • Using a mask can help, but it's less effective than expected
  • Sneeze, cough into the crook of your arm or into a paper handkerchief

Preventing getting infected by covid-19 in Bali

Even though the virus is new and there are a lot of unknown factors, it's quite straight forward how we can avoid to get infected. Beside the choice to opt for SOCIAL DISTANCING the World Health Organisation (WHO) has published several tips on how to protect ourselves and others. These measure will work for anyone in any country, and of course also here in Bali.

Beside SOCIAL DISTANCING and avoiding handshakes, hugging, coughing and sneazing into your armpit, etc - ...washing hands with warm water and soap remains one of the most effective measures in preventing the spread of infectious diseases; including the Corona Virus. Washing with warm water (not cold water) and soap removes oils from our hands that can harbour microbes.

Hand sanitizers have become also very popular for this reason and in some areas you might have to consider yourself lucky, if you can still find them in the shops.
There are two main types of hand sanitizers: alcohol-based and alcohol-free. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers contain varying amounts and types of alcohol, often between 60% and 95% and those liquids kill most germs. Alcohol-free products are less effective than alcohol based products.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call the emergency numbers for Bali -  112 or 223333 (For Bali Area).

This will also protect you and help prevent spread of the virus.
