Passenger allowed on Jakarta-Sorong flight despite testing positive for Covid-19

A passenger was allowed on a Garuda Indonesia flight from Jakarta to Sorong, Papua, despite having recently tested positive for Covid-19, Sorong health authorities have said.

Sorong Airport Health Office coordinator Farida Tariq said that health officials discovered that the passenger, a 20-year-old student, had tested positive for the disease during a routine health document check conducted when the passengers arrived at Domine Eduard Osok Airport in Sorong on Saturday.

According to the latest government regulations on air travel, all prospective passengers must provide documents showing a negative Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or rapid test result before being allowed to fly.


The student, a resident of South Sorong regency, traveled to Sorong with a group of 42 other students.
