British woman, 53, killed by coronavirus in Bali on luxury holiday with husband

A British woman has died in Bali after contracting coronavirus while on a luxury holiday with her husband, The Sun reports.

The 53-year-old has become the eighth Brit to die of the killer bug.

The death is the first linked to Covid-19 in the country.

Achmad Yurianto, the government spokesman on efforts to contain the coronavirus, said she had been "critically ill" before the coronavirus diagnosis and contracted the virus abroad.

Yurianto told a press conference on Wednesday: "At around 2am, the patient with the identity of Case 25 died."

He said her husband will be repatriated soon.

It is unknown if he too had been diagnosed with the virus but has since been quarantined.
