- Two white pilots, 1 Zimbabwean lady set free from mandatory 21-day quarantine
Two white pilots who arrived aboard the Ethiopian arline (Reg ETARF), together with other 30 United Kingdom based Zimbabweans, were set free and not taken for a mandatory 21-day quarantine period, the Zim Morning Post can reveal.
Sources told this publication that two white pilots (one Germany and one Swiss internationals), Heuman Werner whose seat number in the plane was 15A and Jungen Stephan Erwin who was on seat number 1C were whisked away after getting their entry visas.
“They were issued with entry visas and have been taken home by the people who were waiting for them,” the source told this publication.
Another source also said a Zimbabwean lady claimed to have a health clearance certificate was also set free and advised to go for “self isolation.”
In an interview with this publication Harare City Council Health Services director Prosper Chonzi said all the returnees were supposed to go for mandatory quarantine.
“As per protocol we will quarantine them at one of our isolation centres at ZIPAM in Mashonaland West and test them keeping regular checks.
“Those who are symptomatic upon departure will be immediately ferried to Wilkins where we will test them and if found positive we take appropriate treatment action until such time they have recovered,” Chonzi said.
Zim Morning Post is in possession of the names and details of the 32 passengers who landed in Harare at 12:30 and will keep track to check whether the names and numbers correspond with the actual figures quarantined at Zipam.
