Some foreigners caught without face masks in Indonesia were made to undergo push-ups as punishment for disobeying the country’s rule on Covid19.
The tourists were caught on the Indonesian resort island of Bali and were made to do the exercise in the heated sun, with masked security officials stood over them.
Security official Gusti Agung Ketut Suryanegara said Bali authorities made wearing a face mask compulsory last year due to the Covid19 outbreak and that recently, Foreigners have been caught on camera without face masks.
At first, they would claim that they didn’t know the regulation,” Suryanegara told AFP. “Then they said they forgot, or that the mask was wet or damaged.”
More than 70 people paid a fine of 100,000 rupiah ($7), but about 30 others said they did not have the cash, they were then ordered to do push-ups.
Bali’s authorities have warned that foreigners who break virus regulations could be thrown out of the country.
