Anytime one visits the Uluwatu temple in Bali, it’s just good sense to be cautious. It’s very likely that guides at this popular tourist destination will tell you to at least put away any dangling items from your person, lest you want it snatched away by the temple’s main inhabitants-slash-furry local thieves — the monkeys.

Bali Governor Wayan Koster said recent spikes in daily cases can be traced back to the year-end holiday, but claims the rise is “still tolerable” despite these being some of the highest numbers the province has seen since the beginning of the pandemic.

This morning, some parts of Bali’s Badung regency woke up to houses submerged in flood and streets turning into streams following some heavy rain last night, scenes from which are making the rounds on social media.

The mass vaccination program against COVID-19 officially kicked off today in Bali, with Governor Wayan Koster being the first person in the province to receive a dose of the CoronaVac vaccine.

The chief of Bali Health Agency said those who refuse to be inoculated against COVID-19 in the province will not be fined, as Indonesia begins its mass vaccination program this week.

Bali saw another record-breaking daily tally yesterday with 350 COVID-19 cases, bringing the provincial total closer to 20,000 amid new restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

“Today [Jan. 12] 350 people were confirmed positive [for COVID-19], this is the highest number of positive cases since the pandemic hit in Bali,” chief of Bali Health Agency, Ketut Suarjaya, said.
