Fake Covid-19 certificate drama on bus from South Africa

Authorities in Beitbridge yesterday ordered the quarantining of 49 returnees from South Africa after intercepting a passenger on a bus, who had come from India and was travelling with a fake Covid-19 clearance certificate.

The woman, who is reported to have travelled from India, where there is a more virulent Covid-19 variant, via South Africa, was exposed by the Rapid Response Team aboard a Munenzva bus coming from Johannesburg.

The bus was intercepted at the border on Sunday morning during a routine Covid19 screening. Beitbridge district medical officer Dr Lenos Samhere said the woman has been put into isolation pending the outcome of a PCR test result.
