Central Java’s governor, Ganjar Pranowo, also weighed in on the ship’s presence in Cilacap. “I urge port authorities [in Cilacap and elsewhere in Indonesia]] to know the origins of the ships that dock and use their ports,” he said.
“If they came from countries that have dangerous [Covid-19] outbreaks, do not let them dock and use the port facilities of cities in Central Java.” He also called for calm from the public.
Indonesia: Locals warned as Mount Sinabung erupts
Indonesia's Mount Sinabung erupted Friday, spewing thick volcanic ash almost 3 kilometers (more than 1.5 miles) into the sky, the country's geological agency said.
The eruption lasted more than six minutes as ash billowed above the volcano, but there were no immediate reports of casualties, the agency reported. Residents have been advised to stay 5 kilometers from the crater and have also been warned of possible avalanches of volcanic debris.
Sinabung has become increasingly active of late, with at least 15 smaller eruptions recorded in the past week. "The potential for eruption is still high. There will be more eruption in the near future," said Armen Putra, an official at the Sinabung monitoring post.
Mount Sinabung is located on the seismically active zone known as the "Ring of Fire" — an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Ocean. Sinabung has been erupting intermittently for years, with some 30,000 people displaced as a result.
Indonesia has 127 active volcanoes — more than any other country in the world — and in 2016, nine villagers were killed after Sinabung erupted.
