France confirms COVID-19 in military crew sent to Tahiti
Pape’ete: The French High Commission in French Polynesia says the crew member of a French military aircraft who tested positive for COVID-19 during his stay in Tahiti is not contagious.
This was revealed in a statement after media reported that the military Airbus A330 had left French Polynesia as scheduled in the direction of the United States.
It said the individual only had a weak viral trace. It also said that the crew had not been in a two-week quarantine before departing France, but that they wore gloves and masks during the trip. The plane arrived in Tahiti three days ago after stopping over in La Reunion and in New Caledonia,
