A video circulating on social media shows a woman’s confession about her experience of getting a negative COVID-19 result letter, even though she has not undergone a swab test.
Based on the video uploaded by the TikTok account @jessicasugiharta, the incident occurred at the COVID-19 Drive-Thru checkpoint at Soekarno-Hatta Airport.
Responding to this, the Head of Criminal Investigation Unit of the Soekarno-Hatta Airport Police Commissioner Alexander Yurikho will investigate further to find out what happened.
“Investigators from the Soetta Airport Police Criminal Investigation Unit will clarify and confirm to find out how the truth is,” he told VOI, Saturday, January 30.
It was previously known that the owner of the TikTok @jessicasugiharta account together with two people will undergo a COVID-19 swab test. But unfortunately, when they were at the location, only one of them got out of the car and approached the checkpoint.
Then, the officers asked for their identity cards as a condition for undergoing the swab test. After giving it, one person who had previously headed back to the post and they were waiting in the car.
“I swab tests at the airport terminal 3 Soekarno-Hatta Airport. So when I came, one person just got out of the car to his post. So he (the officer) asked for ID cards. Then after giving ID cards, he was told to pay one person with IDR 200 thousand. Then after paying, he was told that we should wait in the car,” the woman said as quoted from the Tik Tok account @jessicasugiharta, Saturday, January 30, 2021.
After waiting for a while, officers approached the woman’s car. Furthermore, the identity cards of the three were returned along with letters that were initially mistaken for forms to be filled out.
“Then when I waited for about 15 minutes or 20 minutes, I don’t really know. Then I was accompanied by people wearing PPE clothes,” she said
The officer did not know if the woman and her two colleagues had not undergone a swab test. But they have received the negative COVID-19 swab results.
