Reported this morning in NSW by Dr Kerry Chant that a Qantas crew member has contracted Coronavirus and worked a Sydney-Darwin flight.
What is Qantas doing differently to other airlines that many of its workers seem to be working with Covid or catching it whilst working (eg Adelaide Airport cluster). Does not seem to occur with any other airline flying to/from/within Australia?
Very disappointing and negligent behaviour from Alan Joyce and his team to not be protecting staff properly. Perhaps better to spend time ensuring its staff are protected whilst working, instead of being denied access to sick leave whilst stood down.

From the ABC website:
NSW health authorities say a Qantas crew member who flew into Darwin from overseas before boarding a domestic flight has tested positive for coronavirus.
The male crew member flew into Darwin on a Commonwealth-supported repatriation flight from Paris on Thursday, December 17, on flight QF176.
The man then boarded the QF841 Darwin to Sydney flight as a passenger on Friday, December 18.
