Since the discovery of two suspected cases of Coronavirus in Jakarta, awareness about Coronavirus has increased sharply among tourists visiting Indonesia. This concern is also a conversation among tourists in Bali. Nowadays, relying on a doctor on call in Bali can be the best way to get your health checked.
Previously, several world health experts said that Indonesia was also included in a country that might be exposed to this virus. Although not as big as other countries, the spread of the Coronavirus is confirmed to occur in two people in Jakarta whose condition is now recovering.
Don’t worry, the World Health Organization (WHO) even says that Coronavirus is not as deadly as other viruses that attack the respiratory system.
To reduce the virus spreading, the Indonesian government recommends that you contact a doctor on call in Bali if you experience or find people with symptoms that are indicated by Covid-19 (Coronavirus) infection.
