The country’s most delinquent surge in cases, driven by the positively transmissible omicron variant, has especially been concentrated in Jakarta, but in current days infections have “increased significantly” in Java and Bali, told Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, the government minister who leads the COVID-19 answer in Java and Bali.
Island was closed to international flights after
Before the pandemic, Bali’s airport accommodated more than 200 international flights with at least one million passengers per day in 2019. The island was closed to international flights after COVID-19 hit the world’s fourth most populous country in 2020.
Tourism is the significant source of revenue in Bali, which is home to more than 4 million people who are mostly Hindu in the mainly Muslim archipelago nation. Bali’s tourist areas were deserted two decades ago after visitors were scared off by deadly terror attacks that targeted foreigners, but the island has worked to overcome that image.
The reopening of Bali to travelers from all countries will help boost the island’s economy, which has been badly impacted by the pandemic, Pandjaitan expressed.
The reopening will also serve as a “trial,” expressed Tourism and Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno, as the government prepares to host G-20 events in Bali later this year.
