A coronavirus (COVID-19) patient in Indonesia was nabbed after he disguised as his wife, wearing a niqab covering his face and carrying fake IDs and a negative PCR test result.
According to an AP report, the man boarded a domestic flight under his wife’s name and brought the identity card, the PCR test result and the vaccination card with his wife’s name.
Indonesian police say a flight attendant aboard a Citilink plane travelling from Jakarta to Ternate in North Maluku province on Sunday noticed the man change the clothes in the lavatory.
“He bought the plane ticket with his wife’s name and brought the identity card, the PCR test result and the vaccination card with his wife’s name. All documents are under his wife’s name,” Ternate police chief Aditya Laksimada said after arresting the man upon landing.
He was only identified by his initials.
Indonesia is one of the hardest-hit countries by the coronavirus (COVID-19) with more than 2 million cases recorded and more than 77,000 death from the virus.
