Disturbing report in the SCMP about a Cathay pilot permitted to fly while suffering from measles. The airline has a few questions to answer…….27 Mar 2019
when I was passing through HKG last weekend a friend who works in the Pier confirmed the staff and all airport workers had been advised to take a measles shot.27 Mar 2019
Curfew for unvaccinated children in the U.S
Rockland County, on the Hudson river north of New York City, has barred unvaccinated children from public spaces after 153 cases were confirmed.
Violating the order will be punishable by a fine of $500 (£378) and up to six months in prison.
The announcement follows other outbreaks of the disease in Washington, California, Texas and Illinois.27 Mar 2019
The SCMP article was very much another Cathay bashing beat-up.
Cathay of course were not complicit and would not have been aware that the pilot was ill unless he told them so which apparently he did not as there was never any reason to do so. To suggest that any reputable major airline would force a pilot to fly while ill is just ridiculous beyond words.
According to the pilots network and pilot friends who work for Cathay the truth is that the pilot felt slightly off colour for a couple of days with the symptoms of a cold but well enough to fly. He began to feel worse,went to the doctor who advised that he had measles.
A very normal situation handled properly other than by the SCMP whos vendetta against Cathay is becoming farcical.27 Mar 2019
