Haiti - Canada : 3rd flight Haiti - Montreal with infected passengers
This is the first time since the start of the year that so many passengers on an Air Transat flight connecting Port-au-Prince - Montreal have tested positive for Covid-19, informs Health Canada, which added TS663, which landed on January 17 in Montreal on its online list of infected flights, believing that the entire plane was affected by the virus. However, Health Canada does not specify the total number of people tested positive...

Recall that 2 other flights from Haiti were deemed at risk in all rows of seats by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) responsible for the analysis of Covid cases on board planes.

Air Transat, TS663, from Port-au-Prince to Montreal, January 10, all rows
Air Transat, TS665, from Port-au-Prince to Montreal, January 13, all rows."

However, it should be noted that the PHAC to obtain this result considers that a row on a flight is affected "[...] if it is three rows at the front and at the back of a row in which was a case of Covid-19." The total number of positive Covid cases is not disclosed. Very few cases are therefore required for all the rows of seats in an airplane to be considered at risk.

Note that since negative tests were made mandatory (January 7, 2021) for all flights to Canada, 139 flights with at least one passenger infected with the virus have landed in Canada.

Frédérica Dupuis, the spokesperson for Transport Canada, made it clear that a negative test result only means that the person did not have Covid on the day of the test. "That's why, even with negative test results before departure, we will continue to see some travelers who will then test positive on arrival," she said.
