Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy (Menparekraf) Sandiaga Uno received a report from one of the tourists from Ukraine who got into trouble when he was about to end quarantine at a hotel in Jakarta.
"Last week, I received a report from one of the tourists from Ukraine that he and his daughter who were planning to vacation in Bali were in trouble. On the last day of quarantine, at a hotel in Jakarta, they received news that the PCR test they took before leaving the hotel shows 'positive' results," said Sandiaga in his official Instagram account @sandiuno on Sunday (31/1).
Directly, the tourists asked for help so they could do a PCR test again because they believed that the results were wrong. In addition, if they continue to isolate themselves in hotels, the costs will be even greater.
Kemenparekraf, continued Sandiaga, seeks to bring justice while providing comfort for tourists. This is done to revive the economy and save jobs in the tourism sector.
For this reason, Sandiaga will not hesitate to take firm action against those who try to take advantage that can tarnish Indonesia's good name.
