The Government is increasingly confident in responding to the downward trend in daily Covid-19 cases. Since February 4, 2022, the government has decided to open Bali to foreign tourist arrivals with quarantine procedures. Starting March 7, foreign tourists may enter Bali without quarantine. That is the policy to encourage Bali's tourism economy with the belief that the situation is getting better. Indeed, the curve is getting sloping even though it has not yet reached the safe level nationally. On March 14, 2022, daily cases only increased by 14,900, already a far decrease from the peak of the third wave on February 16 which reached 64,718 people. This reduction was achieved due to a combination of things, such as health protocols, restrictions on social mobility, and, of course, the achievement of mass vaccination. The first dose of vaccination has reached 193,014,314 people (92.68% of the total target).

As a country with the largest muslim population in the world, the moment of this holiday is celebrated so lively with local traditions that we know as "Lebaran".

Meanwhile, the children were busy choosing treats of various snacks and receiving Eid gifts from their parents and relatives. The atmosphere of Eid is full of brotherhood, delicious food, full of joy and full of blessings.

New Chapter of Superhuman Design

The government and expert associations should set up a committee of experts in charge of compiling all matters regarding genomic research, such as academic studies, research governance, clinical trial procedures. The human genome has been completely sequenced. This scientific achievement for humanity deserves to be celebrated. Researchers across countries collaborating in the Human Genome Sequencing Consortium have succeeded in mapping and sequencing the complete human genome, the whole genetic information of human beings. Made up of superpowers the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Germany and China, the consortium began the major research project in 1990. They successfully started mapping the human genome in 2003, but 15 percent of the segment remained unrevealed. By the end of March 2022, the genome sequence was complete.

Babak Baru Rancang Manusia Super

Para peneliti lintas negara yang berkolaborasi dalam Konsorsium Pengurutan Genom Manusia berhasil memetakan dan mengurutkan genom manusia. Terbuka jalan untuk mengetahui dan memahami cetak biru manusia secara lengkap. Genom manusia sepenuhnya sudah berhasil diurutkan. Kerja besar saintifik kemanusiaan ini sangat pantas dirayakan. Para peneliti lintas negara yang berkolaborasi dalam Konsorsium Pengurutan Genom Manusia telah berhasil sepenuhnya memetakan dan mengurutkan genom (keseluruhan informasi genetika) manusia. Tak tanggung-tanggung, konsorsium ini didukung negara-negara adidaya, seperti Amerika Serikat, Inggris, Jepang, Perancis, Jerman, dan China.Proyek ini, penelitian kolaborasi besar yang dimulai sejak 1990, dan pada 2003 berhasil memetakan genom manusia, tetapi belum lengkap sepenuhnya, masih menyisakan 15 persen segmen yang belum terungkap.
