Instagram Influencer Claims They Are "Stranded" at the JW Maldives Due to COVID-19

"Imagine being stuck on the most beautiful island while all this is happening in the world... Well, apparently that‘s exactly what happened to us which we absolutely don’t mind 🙏🏽☺️
The government locked down the inner-island traffic here in the Maldives 🙈 so it looks like we are stranded here @jwmmaldives for 14 days 🌴🥰 #couldbeworse
We were anyways not looking forward to coming home soon because we would have to immediately go in quarantine 😷 in Malta. Meaning staying at home 14 days with a baby in our little apartment (no gym, no going for a walk etc.). Being a small island with lots of supply problems you can imagine what is going on in Malta at the moment 😩 Not sure if we would have even gotten diapers there... screw the toilet paper 😂
So I guess it was God‘s plan 🙏🏽 that we are lucky to stay a bit longer here in our tropical „bubble“ 🛁 before we finally return back to reality 🙈 It was crazy that when we left the situation was much less severe 😩 How much can change in just 2 weeks 😳
Hope everyone is safe 🙏🏽❤️ & surrounded by your loved ones 🤗 #whatmattersmost How is the situation where you live? ☺️"

All those ridiculous icons immediately make me not believe anything this "influencer" says.

She thinks Malta will have supply chain issues and not her isolated island in the Indian Ocean?!

I believe in karma - people showing off while people suffer (losing their jobs, thousands dying etc) will always lose in the end. Just terrible.

That person being an influencer immediately makes me not believe anything they say.

They've claimed in multiple replies to comments JW Maldives is covering 14 nights complimentary.

And the sunscreen that's clearly bleaching her brain cells.

Yeah, "God's plan" was to stand you in the Maldives.

Humans are doomed.

A little confused. Can she not get back to Male or is she trying to go to another hotel? If the former, everyone is stuck which doesn’t seem to be the case. If the latter, she should just go back to Male and fly home...

To the OP - why would you even know about this person? And why should anyone know about her?

Note to self, my trip to the JW in three weeks, bring it on! I mean I spent 385k (or so) points for 5 nights, would be good to get another two weeks for free . Better than self-quarantine in Hong Kong (or even my overnight stopover of the Male Hotel Jen...)

(crossed fingers that the Maldives doesn't ban my travel; the seaplane still goes; SQ doesn't stop the flights; SQ doesn't declare bankruptcy; the world doesn't end)

What a bimbo. Yes, a resort island is better stocked than Malta...hahahaha. And the health system in the Maldives is top notch as well!
