A special ferry flight of national carrier Air India which took off from Delhi for Moscow on Saturday returned after a crew member was found Covid-19 positive. The flight being operated under the Vande Bharat mission was half way over Central Asia when it was called back. According to sources, the airline's medical staff overseeing the massive testing campaign of its crew, mistook the pilot's test report as 'Negative' while he had tested 'Positive' for COVID-19. Subsequently, the aircraft was informed and the SoPs meant for such situations were immediately implemented. (IANS)
