China is now asking its cabin crew members to wear diapers so they could reduce the risk of contracting the coronavirus.
This new measure was recommended by the aviation regulator of the country.
They urge cabin crews on planes to avoid using restrooms, and instead, they want them to wear disposable nappies.
The authorities believe that this will help the crew avoid the possibility of contracting the virus through restroom transmissions.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China wrote the advice as part of their 49 page set of new guidelines that got implemented to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmissions.
The guidelines state:
It’s recommended that cabin crew wear disposable diapers and avoid using the lavatory unless in special circumstances to reduce the risk of infection.
The advice comes alongside new guidelines for cabin crew employees.
The new guidelines add:
Efforts shall be made to have an understanding of the mental health conditions of front-line crew members. Duty scheduling for international flights shall be made after giving full consideration to crew members’ psychological conditions, personality, current family life pressures, social support system and other circumstances.
China is where the coronavirus originated.
Many believe the virus originated from a wet market in Wuhan.
