Changi Airport Passengers Must Wear PPE Suits : The Facts!
Fact #1 : The Video Is Genuine
First of all, the video is genuine and was recorded on 31 May 2020.
It showed real passengers in blue PPE suits waiting for their flight in Terminal 3 of Changi Airport in Singapore.
Fact #2 : They Are Vietnamese Citizens
In the video, you can hear them speaking Vietnamese. They are actually part of 340 Vietnamese citizens being repatriated from Singapore after COVID-19 infections there approached 35,000.
They include the elderly, pregnant women, those with pre-existing health conditions, the young (under 18 years of age), or tourists whose visas had expired – all of whom paid their own fares for the flight.
Fact #3 : PPE Requirement Was By Vietnam Government + Vietnam Airlines
Those being repatriated were required to don those blue PPE suits, as well as face masks and gloves, by the Vietnamese Ministry of Health, and Vietnam Airlines.
This was a requirement since 15 May 2020, after two Vietnam Airlines flight attendants tested positive for COVID-19 after a repatriation flight from Russia.
They actually had to wear all that for the entire duration of the flight, and were quarantined upon arriving at Can Tho, a southern Vietnamese city.
Fact #4 : PPE Requirement Not Exclusive To Singapore
This requirement to wear blue PPE suits, face masks and gloves was not exclusive to Singapore or Changi Airport.
It was mandated for all Vietnamese citizens being repatriated from COVID-19 hotspots by Vietnam Airlines.
Here are photos of the same precautions being carried out on Vietnamese citizens being repatriated from Taiwan :
According to the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, both the Vietnam Airlines cabin crew and flight crew had to don the same blue PPE suits, face masks and gloves for the entire flight as well.
