The Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) together with the Provincial Government of Bali and the Bali Provincial Health Office have launched a QR Code for the PeduliLindung application. PeduliLindung is an application for contact tracing and to strengthen efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This application helps increase community participation in reporting locations and travel history during the pandemic.
The participation of the community, especially their willingness to independently report their location and travel history during the pandemic, really helps strengthen the 3T (Test, Tracing, and Treatment) run by the government. Therefore, tracking and tracing through technology applications not only makes it easier for the public to report, even while traveling, but also makes users feel safe.
The Minister of Health has stated that the QR Code PeduliLindung application really helps the government and the public in reducing the risk of spreading the virus. First, through the QR scan feature at each location entrance, the location manager can manage the density of visitors. This application is also used to check the completeness of travel documents, so that travellers do not need to jostle when checking the completeness of travel documents. Thus the health protocol is maintained and implemented properly.
The PeduliLindung application is integrated with data on COVID-19 test results and national vaccination data. If a person undergoes a COVID-19 test with a positive result, this application will automatically notify people who have been identified as close contacts for the last 14 days and direct close contacts to immediately carry out a COVID-19 test.
