140 Czech tourists detained at Prague airport over Covid tests

Customs officers at Václav Havel Airport detained some 140 Czech tourists returning from Tunisia on Saturday because their Covid-19 tests were reportedly invalid. The tourists were all forced to undergo fresh tests at the airport before being allowed to go on their way.

The travel agency Blue Style has apologized to its clients and is demanding an explanation from the airport management. The agency claims that the tests were conducted by its doctor in Tunisia and were perfectly in order. It is the first such case reported since the start of the pandemic.
