First off, if you actually have it and become injured, it's not just rescue personnel that you were putting in danger of contracting it from you. It's the entire chain from this rescue personnel to police called to the scene to the firefighters called to the scene to the ambulance transport crew to the nurses at the hospital to the doctor at the hospital to the administration staff at the hospital.Havre wrote: ↑Thu Mar 26, 2020 11:19 amThank you for explaining it then
First a kiter has to be in need for rescue (rarely happens). Then the kiter has to be infected and not sick (if he/she was sick he/she wouldn't kite). Then you got to pass it on - which doesn't just automatically happen just because you end up rescuing someone.
Of course that could happen, but should we say it would happen once every hour? Or once every 10 years? My guess it would be closer to the latter. If so it wouldn't justify any bans by itself.
Second, any of the above personnel can also give it to you.
So go through that list above again and ask yourself if you want to take that chance. Now go to all of those people, actually you'll have to call them oh, and ask them if they would like you to come through their system and have contact with them.
I don't think I can make that more clear. So if someone still misunderstands this, hopefully there is someone who can put it in simpler terms than me, and set them straight.
