A JetBlue Passenger Learned He Had the Coronavirus While on a Flight

quote [ The passenger, who had previously been tested for the virus, boarded a flight from New York to Florida. He got a notification mid-flight that the results were positive, the airline said. ]

NSFW because FUCK THIS FUCKING FUCKER in particular. WTF kind of garbage human being would...

Humanity was a mistake.

I hope they ban his sorry ass rom traveling on any airline ever again.

"Humanity was a mistake." Don't worry, nature is rolling out a recall.

I predict that there will still be numerous defective units left.

JetBlue has pretty decent free WiFi on most of their flights, and an iPhone can continue to send/receive iMessages when connected to the inter webs.

Unless you are being sarcastic, in which case I just got wooshed and need more coffee.

That mod wss meant for WeiYang. So, yes, I'm pretty sure it was meant to be a joke. But thanks for the info!

Would the airline have refunded his ticket? He probably bought it before ever getting tested and didn't have results yet, so my guess would be no. JetBlue, in that case, would also be responsible knowing that people won't or can't eat the cost of the ticket.

That's the thing. There are a lot of people in stable positions screaming at others to make sacrifices, but they're not stepping up to pay for them.

I still don't know if it was the Chinese Government or Wuhan's local government that muzzled the people who figured out something is wrong.

In any case, they shut everything down. People are only allowed to leave twice a week from their homes to buy groceries and supplies. Anyone breaking protocol is hosed down (probably) and arrested. The number of cases have slowed down considerably. Italy now has the highest counts outside of China.

We don't operate like that, so we get dumb decisions like this happening.

This one does a good job on explaining the sad sad math of hesitating a little too long:

We'd get dumb decisions regardless. The darwin awards have no borders.

from what i know about how the party operates, it was local gov that decided to cover it up and reported to the province official, who then relayed to central for the bigger decision to cover up
