Corona outbreak in vacation flyers: travelers with serious allegations - "Can't be that ..."

Update on 2 September 2020:

This flight made the

weekend

a stir: about 200

passengers

have after a flight from

Greece to the UK

in

quarantine

, 16 persons were positive for the

coronavirus

tested.

After a passenger had made violent

allegations

against the

crew

shortly after landing

, another passenger now comments on the

scandalous flight

.

As Victoria Webb from

London

reported to RTL, TUI only

contacted her

five days after the

return flight

to her home country.

In the conversation, the 36-year-old now raises serious allegations against the British health authorities.

However, Webb doesn't say a bad word to the crew.

Even if many passengers wore the

masks under their noses

or even under their chins, the crew was "very attentive".

In addition, according to the British, it is the responsibility of the passengers, who should now know how to wear a mask correctly.

Corona on the plane: Passenger only finds out about the virus risk on the train

The criticism of the 36-year-olds is rather directed at the British

health authorities

.

They have not contacted Webb to this day, although she had filled out a form on board.

She only found out about the disaster flight from the press.

On the way back to London she read about it in an article.

While on the train she was

isolated

by the

train crew

in a single compartment.

Five days later, TUI informed them by email.

"It cannot be that you find out through the

press

that you have been exposed to the coronavirus," explains Webb in the interview.

According to RTL, the travel company TUI is concerned about the reports from the

plane

.

Accordingly, all allegations are now being investigated.

“Our crew is trained according to the highest standards.

We started an extensive investigation because the security risks were not reported during the flight, "RTL quotes the travel company.

"Many of the people wore the masks under the nose, or even under the chin," Stephanie Whitfield said, according to

The Guardian

in the radio station

BBC Radio 4

: "They took off their masks to talk to friends, and they walked the aisles up and down to talk to her friends without masks. "

"The vast majority" of the passengers had not been reminded of the

mask requirement

by the crew

, she said: "Next to me sat a man who wore his mask around his chin during the entire flight, and the stewardess spoke to him and said nothing to him."
