According to the Border Police, the incident took place on the evening of yesterday at the Criva border crossing point on the way out of the Republic of Moldova. After verifying the identity documents of the 21 passengers, the border police officers requested that the COVID-19 tests be presented as well. As a result, one of the passengers presented a test with a positive result in electronic format. He said he was feeling well and had no symptoms of Covid-19, so he did not wait for the results of the medical tests and set off for Poland.
