    Denpasar: Bali Governor Wayan Koster has claimed that the customary village-based imposition of micro-scale public activity restrictions (PPKM Mikro) has helped push down the covid-19 infection rate on the resort island.

    "Bali's number of new confirmed cases, counted on a daily basis, has shown a downward trend since the imposition of this PPKM Mikro policy," Koster said in a press statement that ANTARA received here on Friday.






    In addition to the enforcement of PPKM Mikro that has contributed to the decline in the province's infection rate, local residents' awareness on abiding by the government's health protocols has also improved, he informed.

    At present, Bali's covid-19 recovery rate is recorded at 93.10 percent, while its death rate stands at 2.86 percent, and infection rate at 4.05 percent, he said, adding that the authorities are also taking stern action against those found violating health protocols.

    "Foreign tourists found guilty of violating the government's health protocols are subject to legal sanctions, including getting fined Rp1 million and deported," Koster said.

    The government's vaccination program has been continued to create herd immunity on Bali Island, he added.

    The Bali provincial government has set a target of inoculating three million residents, or 70 percent of Bali's total population, under the vaccination program.
