Health scare at Auckland Airport


tvnz.co.nz

A major health response is under way after an Air New Zealand plane landed at Auckland Airport with children with flu-like symptoms on-board.

A group of 60 passengers arrived into Auckland off NZ90 from Narita, Tokyo, this morning with the symptoms.

Air New Zealand is following public health procedures and has advised the Auckland Regional Public Health Service.

The rapid pace that these symptoms appeared in 60 passengers is alarming. The flight was from Japan so it's possible Tokyo airport may be the source of the outbreak. This could be some novo type virus as they have a tendency to spread rather quickly.

I hope they contain whatever illness this may be. The people of Japan have gone through enough lately and a new super virus would not be helpful to their recovery efforts.

Now they have decided it's just the flu:

Air NZ flight health scare 'just flu'

I don't know if it's concrete though so take it with a grain of salt.

That flu works pretty fast.

I'm not an expert in the matter but it does seem as if this spread pretty fast. The details aren't out yet so we don't know if these kids are linked. Chances are they are school mates and these symptoms could have been spread well before the weekend.

If it were something really bad, they would most likely cover it up.

People have begun disembarking from an Air New Zealand plane that landed this morning at Auckland International Airport from Japan with 73 passengers suffering flu-like symptoms.

Medics have been assessing the passengers to decide how they will be treated and the city's hospitals are on standby for an influx of patients.

Japanese woman Mari Yoshikawa was the first passenger from the plane to come through Customs and into the main terminal. She said she was OK and that only two students on the plane had been sick. She said the two had been vomiting

From what people have been saying after this event, it was actually 2 - 3 people who have a minor viral infection (i.e the common cold) and another passenger raised the alarm with airline staff, which kicked the whole thing into gear.

Some people are calling it a huge over-reaction because of a sniffle - In reality, if this was a much bigger thing than it turned out, we wouldn't have stopped it on that plane anyway, because health officials quarantined only some people from the flight, whereas others went right through customs into the airport lounge area, where all passengers converge to exit.

This was all on the news tonight @ 6pm, so could probably be found @ either of these 2 places.

Oh god... how many cases of kids coming down with extremely rapid "flu-like symptoms" do we need to see before we realize something seriously suspicious is going on here? Have at look at this thread a made a few months ago, this fast hitting "flu-like" virus has been going around for quite a while now: At least 6 schools experienced sudden mass outbreak of unkown illness in the last week. By the end of that thread we had about 15 events suspected to fit the pattern.


A woman passenger said it was "just confusion" and nobody knew what was happening.

She said paramedics were uncoordinated in the way they were checking passengers' temperatures and pulses.

"The left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing. It was a disaster," the woman said.

Turner said even the captain kept coming on the intercom telling people how sorry he was that he had no idea what the situation was and when they could get off the plane.

Turner said ground staff panicked when he told them he had "a bit of a cold" and he was put in a room where the sick students were brought.

"I said 'I'm perfectly healthy, I've got a cold, I'm not going to be exposed to these guys.'"

Turner said the sick students were then whisked to another room, but the whole situation was "a bit of a shambles".


Men in white overalls and masks came onto the plane and eventually escorted all passengers into the airport.

Red-stickered passengers were taken into a separate room where St Johns staff took their temperatures and pulses.


The whole thing is just ridiculously suspicious...

These two recent threads posted in the last 24 hours also raise a red flag, both of the articles talk about a new superbug "resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics" :

Did you even read the links ?

This turned out to be an over-reaction by health staff. Nothing more, nothing less.
The rapid decline into viral infection, was a common cold.....

That's exactly what they want you to believe... those infected always appear to have "flu-like" symptoms, so it's easy to write it off as exactly that... however the fast hitting nature of it is a dead give away, a normal flu doesn't infect so many people so quickly.

And even if this was just a normal flu, you can clearly see by their reaction to this event that they thought it was something else, they were prepared for something else, and they were panicking and taking excessive measures to isolate and treat anyone infected.
