IndiGo crew on flight with Covid patient in home quarantine



Four IndiGo crew members on the Dubai-Bengaluru flight on February 20 in which a coronavirus-infected techie from Hyderabad travelled, have been quarantined at home and put under observation since Monday, the airline said.

On Monday, a software engineer from Hyderabad, who works in Bengaluru, was found to be infected with novel coronavirus.

The 24-year-old techie worked with people from Hong Kong in Dubai last month and is suspected to have contracted the disease there.

He had travelled to Bengaluru on the IndiGo flight on February 20, and then travelled to Hyderabad on bus.

The airline said that it is following all the prescribed Airport Health Organisation (APHO) guidelines and is taking preventive measures for its crew operating flights to regions affected by the deadly virus
