Religious authorities in Bali have called on local residents to remain calm, following viral news that the drum tower at a temple in Klungkung regency sounded itself and fueling local superstitions that it signifies a supernatural warning.

Two people under monitoring for COVID-19 in Bali reportedly “ran away” from a quarantine facility earlier this week. The incident, which quickly made its way to the news cycle, has sparked a huge reaction and backlash on social media amid heightened concerns about the spread of the viral disease on the island.

The Bali provincial government announced seven additional hospitals to handle COVID-19 cases, putting the total number of dedicated health facilities on the island to 11, as more and more positive cases are recorded across Indonesia.

Indonesia’s Directorate General of Immigration recently announced a new policy of automatically extending stay permits for eligible foreigners who are unable to return to their home countries amid the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Nearly 2,000 foreign nationals in Bali are requesting to extend their visas, following travel restrictions around the world that make it impossible for some to return to their home countries. 

The regional office for the Ministry of Law and Human Rights recorded at least 1,830 foreigners who have applied for emergency stay permits in Bali since early February, according to a report from Kompas.

The total number of positive COVID-19 cases in Bali jumped to six today, according to the latest official data from the Indonesian government, with local officials attributing two new cases to foreign patients at Tabanan General Hospital.
