The governor of Bali, Wayan Koster, announced stronger measures in handling the issue of Coronavirus outbreak in Bali. His letter to the public from Friday, March 27th 2020 instructs all officials and leaders to cancel all cultural and religious events.
Following this instruction, on its official Instagram account the Bali Provincial Government once again has emphasized that this measure is not considered as a lock down. It's important to understand, that people in Bali are still able to go out buying food and other important items.
Since the Governor of Bali has released his decree No. 7194 Year 2020, local authorities in Bali are starting to do some adjustment on the way of providing services for the public. Some regions in Bali have followed the advisory published by The Minister of Home Affairs, Republic of Indonesia, regarding the prevention of Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in the local community.
For example the mayor of Denpasar, IB Rai Dharmawijaya Mantra who has already published an advisory letter. In this letter the major advises all the people in Denpasar to limit their activity outside the house, especially in terms of doing grocery shopping by moving to use online shopping services. This measure is expected to be able to minimize the number of crowds as a part of Social and Physical Distancing practices in public places like traditional markets and grocery stores. Furthermore, hopefully near in the future all the people in Denpasar are also expected to get comfortable in using e-money. This is very important as money (bank notes) are considered to have become one of the biggest media spread of the virus.
Several traditional markets in Denpasar starts from today March 30th are accessible via Go-Shop feature in Go-Jek app. "Starting tomorrow, the markets will be available via online on Gojek (GoShop, feature) on Badung Market, Kumbasari, Gunung Agung, Kereneng, Ketapean, Satria, Sanglah, Pidada, Anyar Sari, Cokroaminoto, and Abiantimbul," added the local authority IB Kompyang Wiranata on Sunday March 29.
Other regions in Bali are expected to follow this advisory soon, please take your part in this movement by start doing online shopping and stay at home until further notice informed by the government. (Source: https://www.bali.com/)
