Covid positive traveller jailed after refusing medical examination
Auckland: A woman who tested positive for Covid-19 at the weekend had been in an Auckland jail for 10 days after refusing to be examined when she arrived at Auckland International Airport from the United States.
The woman in her 20s agreed to be tested when she appeared in court last Friday. She was bailed out after it was confirmed she had been tested but before the result was known. Corrections told RNZ’s Checkpoint that during her time at Auckland Women’s Prison, the woman was quarantined and had no contact with other prisoners.
