Prior to 2020, flying was a safe form of travel. But then COVID-19 came along and started to kill without impunity. Every passenger who steps aboard is taking a chance of catching COVID-19 and suffering the consequences. Stuffy nose, cough, lack of energy and fever. The other 1%...well. You know what happens to them.
A passenger who died after a United Airlines flight from Orlando,
Florida, to Los Angeles was diverted had COVID-19 symptoms, the airline
said on Friday.
A passenger on the plane tweeted that she overheard his wife tell EMTs that he had tested positive for COVID-19.United officials said Friday that the man, who died at the hospital, had coronavirus symptoms but didn’t confirm a positive test result, according to the publication.
"We implore passengers not to travel if they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have COVID-related symptoms. If in doubt, the best option is to get tested," United Airlines said.
A fellow passenger Cameron Roberts felt that having a heart attack and dying was poetic justice for getting on a plane while showing COVID-19 related symptoms.
"It's sad to see that, you know, they lost a family member,” Roberts said, “but at the same time, it was irresponsible on their part to have came on the plane.”
Yeah. How dare he die on his plane.
That's why we need more than just complete a self assessment "Ready-to-Fly" checklist before checking into a flight.
The checklist, prompts passengers, to acknowledge they have not tested positive for COVID-19 nor have they had any related symptoms in the past two weeks.
This honor system isn't going to cut it anymore.What we really need is to require every passenger to show proof of a negative test result and proof that they have been vaccinated.
The long never-ending list of possible COVID-19 or COVID-19 related symptoms could include just about everything from a headache to allergies.
If people answered honestly whether they tested positive or have one of the thousands of possible symptoms they wouldn't be allowed to go anywhere. People understand this and they're going along with it. So are the airlines who are in danger of going out of business.
But what they don't understand is that this is only the beginning. Its voluntary for now depending on where you go. And you have to pay for it. This is the only way to avoid being quarantined for two weeks. Punishments and rewards.
AirAsia CEO recently said that eventually Asia won't let anyone enter without a Covid-19 vaccine.
Yes people this is really happening. And that's why some poor bastard who died of a heart attack on an airplane is national news. There's an agenda to push. They've even said they couldn't confirm whether he actually had COVID-19.
It doesn't even matter though. The average person will read the headline and be like,"oh shit. COVID killed a guy while he was flying on an airplane and he put others as risk of dying of a heart attack too, I guess its good we have all these restrictions to keep us safe. Maybe we need more restrictions. I need to feel safer.
I understand not everyone is that stupid, but these people exist and they are the intended audience. This is how they engineer consent.
