In line with the Asian country’s safety guidelines in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, China’s aviation regulator is recommending cabin crew on charter flights to high-risk COVID-19 destinations wear disposable diapers and avoid using the bathroom to reduce the risk of infection.

The instruction is contained in a 38-page list of guidelines for airlines to prevent the spread of the disruptive Coronavirus, agency report stated.

The sixth edition echoes similar instructions in previous, less lengthy versions.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) disclosed that the recommendation applies for charter flights to and from countries and regions where infections exceed 500 in every one million people.

The diaper advice is in a section on Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), which also recommends such for the cabin crew, including medical protective masks, and double-layer disposable medical rubber gloves.
