Fully vaccinated plane passenger found dead from coronavirus
A fully-vaccinated passenger on a flight from Turkey to Germany was found dead in his seat, reportedly infected with the coronavirus.
Crew members on Pegasus Airlines’ Flight 1043 discovered the 51-year-old traveller, when they arrived in Hamburg last week, reported German newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt.
Germany’s COVID-19 rules require passengers to reveal their COVID status before flying by providing a negative test result or proof of immunity.
The man was allowed to board the 3 1/2-hour flight from Istanbul because he proved he was fully vaccinated, according to the paper.
