Bali Works to Halt Viral Arrivals

Arriving International Garuda Flights into Bali Now Being Disinfected by Airport Health Officials.

(5/9/2009) Beritabali.com reports that commencing from May 5, 2009, Health officials at Bali's International Airport have started spraying aerosol disinfectants inside the cabins of Garuda's international flights landing in Bali in the latest move to reduce the possibility of local contamination by the H1N1 Flu Virus.

The first flight to undergo the disinfecting process was GA 871 landing on May 5th from Seoul Korea. Shortly after the plane landed, the 256 passengers on board were asked to remain in their seats while quarantine officials sprayed the entire interior cabin 3 times.

Nyoman Murtiyasa, the Head of the Airport Health Office in Bali, said: "The effort to spray arriving aircraft was started in May 5th with planes from countries confirmed with the virus, such as Hong Kong and China, getting top priority. This will continue to take place at the Ngurah Rai Airport until the WHO says the threat of swine virus has passed."
