Flights from Johannesburg to Amsterdam take about 11 hours, with the cargo plane believed to have made one stop, in Nairobi, Kenya. It is very unusual for stowaways on long flights to survive, due to the cold and low oxygen at high altitudes. “[It’s] the elephant in the room. The man's age and nationality have not yet been determined, police say. But it seems too many lie-ins and not enough moving around during the colder months have caused them to get a bit out of shape. "The man was found alive in the nose wheel section of the plane and was taken to hospital in a stable condition," Royal Dutch Military Police spokeswoman Joanna Helmonds told the AFP news agency. We already have community spread,” said the president of the Australian Medical Association’s WA branch, Mark Duncan-Smith. "It is quite remarkable that the man is still alive," she said. They seized 663kg (104st 4lb) of heroin, 87kg (13st 4lb) of methamphetamine and 291kg (45st 8lb) of hashish and marijuana.

A spokesperson for freight carrier Cargolux confirmed in an email to Reuters that the stowaway had been on a flight operated by Cargolux Italia. WA already has that one case. “Once the warmer weather kicks in, they should start being a lot more active, and this will bring their weight down, too. According to flight data, the only Cargolux freight flight from Johannesburg to Schiphol on Sunday also made a stop in Nairobi. It is not known if the man boarded the plane in South Africa or Kenya.” In a strongly worded statement, Duncan-Smith called on the WA government to introduce modest restrictions, and to properly prepare the health system and schools for the pandemic.
