This flyer infected by COVID is a total brake!
An Indonesian man with coronavirus disguised himself as his virus-free wife to board a commercial flight to the country, officials who arrested him said.
The traveler, identified only as “DW”, allegedly wore a niqab over his face as he presented his other half’s ID card to slip on the recent Citilink flight from Jakarta to Ternate, according to CNN Indonesia.

The cross-dressing flyer also reportedly showed officials his wife’s negative test results while pretending to be her, according to the outlet, which did not report when the incident occurred.
But the traveler was foiled in midair when a flight attendant saw him walk into a bathroom dressed in a veil – and then come out dressed as a man, according to the report.
An officer on the plane quickly tested the man for COVID-19 and put on personal protective equipment after the test came back positive, the operational chief of the Ternate COVID-19 task force said, Muhammad Arif Gani, according to the report.

The traveler was forced to evacuate and then taken by ambulance to his home to “self-isolate”, he said.
Local police said they would prosecute DW after the period of isolation, the outlet said.
Indonesia has become a hotspot for coronavirus infections in recent weeks with nearly 3 million cases and 74,920 deaths reported on Wednesday.
