Corona's Positive Chinese Tourist was Infected After a Holiday

Minister of Health Terawan Agus Putranto confirmed that a Chinese tourist who was infected by corona virus (Covid-19) was infected after a vacation in Bali. So, he was not infected after arriving to China, nor when he was in Bali.

Terawan explained the conclusion was based on calculating the 14-day incubation period since the Chinese tourist left Bali on January 28. Moreover, he continued, to date there has not been a single resident in Bali indicated to have contracted the virus.

The first information explaining that a positive Chinese citizen contracted the Corona virus after visiting Bali came from the authorities of Anhui Province, China on Thursday (6/2).

At that time, the Huanian Disease Control Center reported that a patient named Jin had been tested to corona virus positive on Wednesday (5/2) and that he had previously been on holiday in Bali for about a week, from January 22 to January 28, 2020.
