The resumption has been prioritised in the green zones under tight health protocols to protect the holidaymakers from the virus contagion and deter imported cases in the destinations, the ministry said.
The move was in line with the new global trend in tourism in which holiday makers prefer to choose clean and safe tourist destinations for their journeys, officials have said.
The Covid-19 cases in Indonesia, however, continued to rise.
The numbers rose by 1,268 within one day to 66,226, with the death toll adding by 68 to 3,309, Achmad Yurianto, a Health Ministry official, said at a press conference on Tuesday (July 7).
According to him, 866 more people had been discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of recovered patients to 30,785.
Within the past 24 hours, five provinces, namely Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java and South Sulawesi, recorded high numbers of cases, Yurianto said.
Yurianto called on the public to follow the health protocols in a bid to avoid more Covid-19 infections. - Xinhua
