Catherine Bennett said : “Most reports suggest [transmission] is a risk for those people sitting close, and on long haul flights were masks might be removed during meals. Newcastle to Brisbane would have people on the plane together for less than an hour all told,” “People in neighbouring seats and rows are at greater risk so it would be unusual to quarantine all passengers, unless it was very small plane, and this was a 737.
