We recently discussed the closure of a reef in Vietnam to divers in an attempt to reduce stress. They are temporarily closing some reefs in Cozumel as well.

Now, Bonaire has closed a popular dive spot (Karpata) in an attempt to contain SCTLD which has just recently been detected there.

Any thoughts on the effectiveness of this strategy and what do we know at this point about how the disease spreads?

Bonaire has managed to avoid SCTLD up until now.
