In Germany, face masks are mandatory while being on board of a plane. However, two Hungarians refused to wear those while travelling by plane flying from Budapest to Munich last Friday. That was an unfortunate and expensive decision since they had to pay 1,000 EUR fine per capita.
According to idowa.de, the twin sisters did not want to take up their protective face masks so, after the landing and following the protocol German police took them into custody. In Germany, everybody has to wear a face mask during flights into all directions because of the coronavirus epidemic.
The two 37-year-old twin sisters thought that they are exceptions, so they refused to wear the masks. The crew of the plane warned them many times that wearing a mask is not eligible but compulsory but without no visible effect. To make matters worse,
they even flipped the cabin manager the bird to demonstrate their thoughts about the face mask regulation.
After the landing in Munich, the airport police waited for them with a 1,000 EUR fine for both the sisters which they had to pay at the airport immediately. Afterwards, authorities let them free. Police already told that the issue will not stop there. Further criminal procedures await both of the Hungarians because of the insults and offences they committed on board of the plane.
As we reported before,
face masks can be very important in personal protection against the spread of the virus.
We wrote HERE that it could happen that some healthcare workers infected their colleagues because they worked without face masks which they took off since breathing was very difficult under them. Afterwards, they sat down to have lunch with their colleagues even though they worked in the infectious unit of the hospital, and this is how they passed on the disease to their colleagues.
The two nurses of the Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Hospital in Budapest
broke the face mask rule
because it was very difficult to breathe under them. Moreover, later on, they sat down with their colleagues to have lunch together. As a result, they infected dozens of nurses and doctors. The Ministry of Human Capacities said that the nurses did not take off their masks. However, they acknowledged that there are 24 workers out of approximately 1,400 who caught the virus in the hospital.
Before in the Szent Borbála Hospital of Tatabánya, 46 healthcare workers got infected, and a 41-year-old orderly died in the disease. RTL Klub asked then the Operative Board about how many Hungarian healthcare workers had been infected, but they did not answer. On April 27, Cecília Müller, the chief medical officer of Hungary, said that 13 pc of the total number of infected people in Hungary are healthcare employees.
