Indonesia bans international visitors for 2 weeks over new Covid-19 virus strain

International visitors will be banned from entering Indonesia for a period of two weeks, in an attempt to stop the spread of a new potentially more contagious variant of the coronavirus, its foreign minister Retno Marsudi said on Monday (28).

Effective from 01.01.2021, the new regulation applies to all foreign visitors, except for high-level government officials, she added.
