This morning we received an email saying that one of our colleagues had died but did not mention the cause. Tonight, Im flying to Dar Es Salaam where at the moment getting the risk of getting malaria is quite high. While chatting with the crew to tonight, I dont know how true, they said our colleague died of complications from malaria. They said she did not know she had malaria and thought she had flu 36hrs prior. Last year I remember flying with a couple of crew as well who suffered from the same and damn this is not a great perk that came with the job.
Days like this make me question what am I still doing here. May she rest in peace.
