One trader in Pasia Tiku, Erna (31) in Lubukbasung, said onThursday the number of visits diminished from 50 people to 30 people per day.
"The visit diminished since Sunday Okt 6 until Thursday Okt 10," she said.
She said the visit diminished because a visitor was stung by a jellyfish while bathing on Sunday Okt 6.
"I hope the beach pollution from the jellyfish will be resolved soon, so the number of visits will return to normal," she said.
