BC CDC identifies two more flights for coronavirus exposure

Oct 2 2020, 2:39 am

The BC Centre for Disease Control has added one flight within BC and another international flight that landed in Vancouver to its list of routes carrying coronavirus-positive passengers.

The BC CDC tweeted Thursday evening that Air Canada’s flight 8418 from Vancouver to Kelowna on September 23 had someone on board who later tested positive for coronavirus.

It also flagged Air Canada’s flight 855 from London to Vancouver on September 23 for potentially having coronavirus exposure on board.

The BC CDC didn’t display information for what row the infected passenger was sitting between.

The BC CDC keeps a list of flights passing through the province that had coronavirus-positive patients on board, and the Government Canada keeps a similar list country-wide.
