COVID-19 situation in Indonesia

COVID-19 cases in Indonesia (Bali)

As of today, the country has reported 6,385,140 positive cases and 157,729 deaths.

Despite being an island chain that is roughly the size of the United States, most of those people live on a handful of islands in highly urbanized areas.

For many people in East Asia, face masks and social distancing are quite normal after so many contagious diseases over the past twenty years. Indonesia has not reached that point yet.

The government is trying everything necessary to maintain complete control of the pandemic without destroying much of Bali’s tourism-based economy in the balance.
