Their arrest was made “without violence”, the newspaper added.

The couple had been staying at a quarantined hotel in the Kennmerland region, where travellers from South Africa who have tested positive for COVID-19 are self-isolating.

Among more than 600 passengers on two flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg, 61 have tested positive for COVID-19 – and 13 of them were infected with the Omicron variant.

Private security guards at the hotel make sure guests remain in isolation, while police outside ensures no one enters the premises if they do not need to be there.
