The Portuguese multinational ministry, in response to a request for clarification from Lusa, said, “The Portuguese government, through the Portuguese Embassy in The Hague, is monitoring the situation and contacting the concerned citizen.”
Skynews reported today, citing Dutch media, that a “couple who tested positive for coronavirus have been arrested after escaping a quarantine hotel in the Netherlands before attempting to leave the country.”
This UK TV channel reported that the couple – a Portuguese and a Spaniard – were being held in a plane that was about to take off at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, on Sunday, according to Dutch police.
According to Portuguese MNE, the national is “in hospital and will be waiting for the result of the new PCR test”.
However, Spanish news agency EFE said today that the couple denied escaping from the hotel and claimed they had been given permission to leave after two negative tests.
Carola Pimenta, 28, and Spaniard Andres Sanz, 30, who live in Spain, are “trapped in an inhumane situation, in a cold room, with no information” about what will happen, in a hospital in the north of the Netherlands. .
