    Bali on alert following first monkeypox case

    THE STAR – Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport authorities in Bali have stepped up efforts to monitor passengers arriving at the airport following the discovery of Indonesia’s first confirmed case of the virus over the weekend.

    Airport’s general manager Handy Heryudhitiawan said in a statement that the airport management has installed six thermal scanners to monitor the temperature of all passengers arriving in Bali.

    To minimise the direct contact with the passengers, all airport officers have also been directed to always be wearing masks, he said

    “We also routinely conduct disinfection in our facilities that are most used by passengers, including trolleys, chairs in the waiting room and self-check-in counters,” Handy added.

    Despite the first infection news, Handy said the airport has yet to see a negative impact on the arrival of tourists into Bali.
