Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali - Bali's I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport anticipates a new variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, B.1.1.529, or the Omicron Variant. This virus is considered more contagious and dangerous than the other variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

This new variant of SARS-CoV-2 can increase the possibility of the third wave of Indonesia's Covid-19 pandemic.

The I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport Bali authorities have prepared facilities to anticipate the variants identified in South Africa.

Stakeholder Relations Manager of I Gusti Ngurah Rai, Taufan Yudhistira, said he had prepared several supporting facilities, such as a thermal scanner and PC, to optimize the use of the government's Covid-19 Apps, PeduliLindungi.

In addition, the airport has prepared physical distancing stickers both on the floor and on the seats. The authority also has a mobile team to remind airport passengers about the Health Protocol.

"From the regulation point of view, of course, the passengers have to be vaccinated and tested negative of Covid-19. Those are the requirements of traveling through air transportation," he explained as quoted from -- Network.

He hopes there will be no transmission of Covid-19 Omicron because it will definitely affect the airport's traffic. However, he will always adhere to the regulations given by the government.

"Of course, we hope that we all take responsibility in controlling the transmission of Covid-19, from the simplest step, disciplined to the Health Protocol," he added.
