Covid spread on plane despite passenger's negative test

https://nypost.com/2020/11/23/covid-19-spread-on-plane-despite-negative-test-study-says/

"COVID-19 spread to several travelers on a long-haul flight to New Zealand — likely from an infected passenger who had tested negative prior to departure, a new study says.

The outbreak on the 18-hour flight from Dubai in September also occurred despite passengers wearing masks and gloves during, according to a report Friday from the New Zealand Ministry of Health.

The infected traveler had tested negative using a PCR test within 48 hours of the flight departing and was experiencing no symptoms.

But later it was determined that four other passengers had likely become infected by the traveler while on the flight.".. (more)

3. Sorry. I have a yahoo email account and it popped up on the main page.

The NYPost article in the OP did link to the "original story," which was actually a report in a scientific journal and not the WaPo. I was not aware of the WaPo story on the same topic and had not seen this study reported elsewhere on DU. I thought it was useful information and that it would be helpful to the DU community in making choices. I would do the same again.

5. I just have a NY Post pet peeve after their brazen lies pushing the Hunter Biden fake story

If I saw the story, I would look for another source, as I did. Turns out the disgraced Post story was days after the fact. They should never be used as a source based on their Hunter Biden slander.

4. Nothing is as dangerous as "unloaded" gun.

Seems negative tests generate a false sense of security rather easily.
