AT Bali, we do not joke with the wearing of the mask: 15 pumps if it is badly placed on the face, and 50 pumps for those who do not wear it at all. All under the stern gaze of a police officer. The less athletic can pay a fine of 100,000 rupees, or about six euros.
But not all tourists follow the rules. Since the start of the year, around a hundred foreigners have been arrested without a mask on the tourist island, which has been hard hit by the epidemic. “Respect for wearing a mask by foreign tourists is very low, explains an officer in charge of maintaining order. 90% of offenders are foreigners. And when we surprise them, we have the feeling that they do not respect us “. Indonesian authorities have warned that they could go so far as to deport foreigners who violate the rules.
