The risk to get infected in Bali might be as low or high as in any other place in the world, that’s not a so called hotspot. Indonesian authorities and particularly the ones in Bali have shown that they take the situation seriously and have implemented several regulations and procedures, But of course, there is no guarantee, there is always room for improvement, and we all still learn how to deal with this.
It would not be right to claim that any country, be it our home country or any other place these days is 100% safe. Based on the scientific data and experiences the world has gathered by now about the coronavirus, the virus is indeed a threat. However, how much of a threat really depends on your individual circumstances, your personal actions and behaviors, and the level of precautions you take. And of course to a certain extend we depend on the professionalism of government authorities and also businesses that facilitate transportation, travel, etc.
In a way, life goes on in Bali. But more people realise, as in many other parts of the world, it’s serious and we should all follow the precaution measures as suggested by the WHO, and the local government.
