Foreigners without face masks punished with push-ups in Indonesia [video]

Foreigners caught not wearing face masks on the Indonesian resort island of Bali are being subject to an unusual punishment: push-ups. 

Video footage circulating on social media this week shows tourists in T-shirts and shorts being made to do the exercise in sweltering tropical heat as masked security officials stood over them. 

Bali authorities made wearing a face mask in public mandatory last year as Indonesia battled a raging Covid-19 outbreak. 

In recent days, however, scores of foreigners have been caught without face coverings, said security official Gusti Agung Ketut Suryanegara. 

More than 70 people paid a fine of 100,000 rupiah (N3,360), but about 30 others said they did not have the cash and were ordered to do push-ups. 

Those not carrying a mask had to do between 25 and 50, while those who were wearing one improperly were punished with 15.
