Bali sends people home without a mask straight away


Must read

Authorities on the Indonesian island of Bali send tourists home without masks. On Monday, three vacationers from the United States, Russia and Ireland were put on a plane for not wearing mandatory mouth and nose protection in public. It was the first time that happened.

There is ‘zero tolerance’ in Bali, the authorities emphasize. The tourists violated a basic rule by not wearing a mask during this period of emergency. A Russian woman who refused to go into quarantine after testing positive will also be deported once she is no longer contagious.

Indonesia is struggling with a flare-up of the corona pandemic due to the more contagious Delta variant of the virus. The number of infections per day quadrupled in less than a month.

Earlier, a group of tourists in the popular Tapovan region of India was given ‘punishment’ by the authorities. They had to write ‘I did not follow the corona rules and I am sorry’ five hundred times.
