Mystery of Bali is immune to the Corona Virus, This is an Epidemiology Expert
Island of the Gods is in the spotlight. This is because the number of corona cases in Bali since it was first announced by President Joko Widodo in early March to date has only 38 cases, with a mortality rate of only 2 patients.The Hong Kong-based Asia Times daily made a special report on it. In an article entitled ‘Bali’s Mysterious Immunity to Covid-19′, the media highlighted the absence of an increase in positive cases of Covid-19 in Bali.
Asia Times highlights the few positive corona numbers. This raises suspicion because Bali is a destination for foreign tourists, including from China.To reinforce the argument, the Asia Times included data on an increase in the number of Chinese tourist arrivals by 3 percent in January 2020. In the same month, the corona virus paralyzed Wuhan.Section Head of Prevention and Control of the Bali Health Service,
I Wayan Sudiyasa, immediately refuted this assumption. According to him, there has been no scientific research that says the Balinese are immune to the corona virus.”When compared with the total population of Bali, positive patients have included many compared to other regions, entering the top 10 at the national level,” said Sudiyasa, quoted from Liputan6.com.

Mysteries of Bali Become Corona Covid-19 Virus ‘Immune’ Island
It’s been almost three months the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the corona virus as a global pandemic. This health threat is a blow to the economy, especially the tourism sector in Bali.However, there is something unique about the Covid-19 case on the Island of the Gods. To date, there have been only 86 positive Covid-19 patients with a mortality rate of 2 patients.One reason is the high number of positive corona cases which reached 4,839 on April 14, with the largest case in Java.
This fact makes the foreign media and bloggers surprised, especially since Bali is known as a world tourist destination. In fact, Bali itself still opened international borders until March when corona began to run rampant.”I also feel confused because it doesn’t make sense,” the blogger who lives in Ubud, Rio Helmi, was quoted as saying by the Asia Times.”We don’t have data, but there are signs of a surge in deaths,” he continued.
