The Governor of Bali admitted that he had prepared a scheme to open the tourism sector in Bali in the green zone or areas with minimal risk of transmission of Covid-19.
The tourism sector which has been opened will allow domestic and foreign tourists to visit these destinations.
“We together with the Minister formulated a green zone. This is a zone that will be allowed to be visited by domestic tourists as well as foreign tourists,” said the Governor of Bali Wayan Koster in a mass vaccination event for tourism and transportation sector officers on Sunday (28/2).
Koster explained that the acceleration of vaccination in Bali aims to revive the tourism sector, which had been paralyzed by the pandemic.
He asked the Balinese people to support the vaccination program so that the tourism and economy sector on the Island of the Gods could gradually improve.
Wayan asked residents and tourism actors not to hesitate about the safety of the Covid-19 vaccine provided by the government. Because personally, Koster had already received two doses of vaccine injections in January.
“Hopefully with this what the community hopes so far, we have been experiencing this pandemic for one year, it has been very burdensome, so we must support this vaccination program,” concluded Koster.
Meanwhile, vaccination in Indonesia has entered its second phase. In the second phase, the government targets injecting as many as 26,1 million elderly and 17,5 million public service officers.
The Ministry of Health has also determined the criteria for the group of public service workers who are recipients of this second phase vaccine. Those referred to include market traders, educators, religious leaders, representatives of the people, government officials, and the state civil apparatus.
Then the security guards; tourism, hotel, and restaurant officers; public servants and heads of village apparatus. Furthermore, public transportation workers, athletes, journalists, or media workers.
