German plane in brief ‘lockdown’
By NATION REPORTER
NOBODY was allowed to disembark from a German plane which arrived in Solwezi early yesterday to collect missionaries who had been involved in a road traffic accident.
Health authorities also disinfected the plane when it arrived and before it left.
The accident victims were taken on the plane by the Provincial Health Director and Health officials heavily clad in protective clothing.
Aside the health personnel, only military officers were present at the airport with the rest of the airport staff having been sent away.
The plane was allowed to be at the airport very briefly.
