The head of each Bali region decided to adopt a policy of isolation during the next week. One kelurahan, Kelurahan Panjer, enforces that for five hours every day in a week all access to Panjer Kelurahan is closed.
The area will be guarded by military, police, pecalang and other traditional security elements. The policy was taken after a citizen tested positive for Corona Virus or COVID-19.
The Chairperson of the COVID-19 Task Force, Dewa Made Indra said that currently the case of Patients Under Supervision (PDP) numbered 141 people (an additional 11 people consisted of 8 Indonesian citizens and 3 foreigners).
From 141 samples tested, 100 people came out, namely 90 negative people, 10 positive people. In other words there is an additional 1 positive Indonesian citizen.
The Task Force appealed to all Balinese because the distribution of co-19 showed an increasing trend at the national level. Covid-19 is not something that is taken lightly, but must be with high vigilance.
The community is also asked to continue to follow the invitation and appeal from the Government to regulate distance from one another, to reduce physical interaction while reducing activities outside the home.
This area isolation is only enforced for five hours every day. Starting at 19:00 WITA until 00:00 WITA. The isolation of the area lasted from 31 March 2020 to 7 April 2020.
