12 Australians stranded in Bali as mass spraying continues

Published on : Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Today, Bali authorities have carried on a mass spraying of disinfectant in and around the tourist areas of the island in a bid to slay off coronavirus.

 

In Denpasar and Jakarta, all schools will close for two weeks that would start from Monday. Also, they have put exams on hold to stop virus spread and as Indonesia declared that one of its ministers is in hospital with COVID-19.

 

National exams will start tomorrow and will now be suspended.

 

Also, in Sumba, twelve Australians are stranded on a surf boat, with authorities not allowing them to disembark.

 

Bali, who gets the maximumof its income from tourism, is hoped now to be hard-hit by the announcement of Australia that all foreign travellers must self-quarantine for 14 days after travel considering that this step will see a massive drop in travellers.

 

With stopping of all flights to and from China to Bali, the industry has been bleeding in terms of earnings. China was the biggest tourist market for Bali, followed by Australia and authorities have been looking for Australians to continue travelling to perk up their economy.

 

Till now, Indonesia has just 96 confirmed cases of COVID-19, in spite of the sprawling nation having a total population of 270 million. There are five death cases among the 96 cases including that of 53-year-old British woman Kimberley Finlayson, who passed away in a Bali hospital last week while on a holiday with her husband.
