The number of daily COVID-19 cases in Bali has surpassed yet another record today, making today the fourth day in a row that the province has registered record new daily highs.
Today’s confirmation of 174 cases brings the provincial tally to 5,710, which includes 879 active cases and 79 deaths.
The latest COVID-19 data from the provincial government shows Badung regency reporting the most number of active cases with 167, followed by Gianyar regency and Denpasar city with 146 and 120 active cases, respectively.
Officials have yet to identify the cause of recent caseload spikes or indicate the possibility of heightened restrictions.
“Let’s continue to support the government’s efforts by staying disciplined on implementing health protocols, whenever and wherever,” Dewa Made Indra, regional secretary of the Bali administration, said yesterday.
The administration last week launched a new Gubernatorial Regulation (Pergub), which imposes tougher sanctions on health protocol violators in Bali. Individuals who don’t wear masks are subject to a fine of IDR100,000 (US$6.76) whereas businesses and public facilities are subject to IDR1,000,000 (US$67,56) fine or temporary permit revocation if they fail to provide health precaution facilities.
