A rumor denied in the United States, but which nevertheless spreads in France. It targets anti-Covid vaccination. A pilot “vaccinated” of the American airline Delta Air Lines would have died “suddenly” in flight, causing an emergency landing. According to versions of the rumor, which is spreading on Facebook and Twitter, the pilot was working in Los Angeles or the incident occurred while flying over that city.

“These allegations are false”, denied Delta airline on Wednesday. As for the US Federal Aviation Administration, it has not found any “evidence” that such an incident took place,
she explained to our colleagues at Lead Stories.
The rumor comes from a podcast aired in the United States, in which a respondent argued that the incident had occurred within the past ten days.
Unlike its rivals, Delta Airlines has decided not to make vaccination against Covid-19 compulsory for its employees, but to charge an additional cost to its unvaccinated employees. They will have to pay an additional 200 dollars (171 euros) for their health coverage from November 1. 90% of the company’s 80,000 employees are vaccinated,
reported CNBC on Wednesday.
