A Covid-positive Indonesian man who disguised himself as his wife to board a domestic flight was caught mid-air.
The man wore a full-face veil known as niqab and presented his wife’s passport and her negative Covid test result upon boarding. The man has only been identified by his initials DW.
The man was caught mid-flight when a stewardess raised the alarm when he changed back to his regular clothes. The man was detained upon landing and tested immediately. When he was found positive, he was ordered to self-isolate at home and will be prosecuted when his quarantine ends.
