An Indonesian man, who was Covid-positive, had disguised himself as his wife to board a domestic flight but was caught mid-air.
The man, who has only been identified by his initials, wore a full-face veil, known as a niqab to board the flight. He was also using his wife’s passport and her negative Covid test result.
He was caught when he decided to change into his regular clothes midway through the flight which caused a stewardess to raise the alarm.
The man was detained after the plane landed and was tested for Covid immediately, after discovering he had tested positive, he was ordered to self-isolate at home.
Police said that they are planning to prosecute him as soon as his quarantine ends.
