Pictured: Tourist who died from coronavirus on Bali holiday

The British woman who died in Bali after contracting COVID-19 has been named as 53-year-old Kimberley Finlayson and remembered by colleagues as a creative and inspiring force in her field.

Tributes for Ms Finlayson have been shared by FMC, the dental publishing company she started with her husband, Ken Finlayson in 1995.

The couple were on holiday in Bali when Ms Finlayson passed away on Wednesday.

“She approached the world with an infectious passion, creativity and determination,” the website read.

“She championed her family with the same fierce pride with which she approached her business, and her four children were the centre of her world.

“Those fortunate enough to know her will remember a whirlwind of energy and ideas.”

Ms Finlayson was taken to hospital last week, with authorities unsure of whether she contracted the virus before or after arriving in Bali in February.

Indonesian health authorities said on Wednesday the woman had serious health problems.

"The patient had severe illnesses including diabetes, hypertension, hyperthyroid and lung disease," Achmad Yurianto, a spokesman for the government's virus response team, told reporters in Jakarta.

The woman’s husband was released from hospital after testing negative to COVID-19.

“Based on information from Bali Health Agency the laboratory test result of the husband of the COVID-19 patient number 25 are complete. The lab test result is negative,” Sanglah Hospital director, Wayan Sudana told 7News.

He will now return to his four children in the UK who 7News reported were struggling to come to terms with their mother’s sudden passing.

FMC described Ms Finlayson as down to earth and generous at work and in her personal life.

“Kimberley leaves behind a legacy that will live on for decades to come.” FMC read.
