It's slightly disconcerting to find I was a passenger on one of the radioactive contaminated BA planes - a flight from Istanbul to London earlier this month. Of course we are told the risk is "very low" but to consult NHS Direct, BA or your GP. BA tell me they have no details and to contact NHS direct, but the risk is "very low". NHS Direct say they have no details, and no idea what the symptoms may be, but the risk is "very low". I'm not convinced the average GP would know much about Polonium-210 or the symptoms of contamination. But they could probably tell me the risk is "very low". I'm sure it is, and am not seriously concerned - but there is still a difference of some significance between "very low" and none...and the complete absence of public information about symptoms or prudent action means that confidence in how it's being handled is also, perhaps, on the low side.
