Emperor Divers Recognises the First Covid Diver Hero

Mon, 01/03/2021 - 18:04

I’d like to nominate, Deborah Braham, a friend I made on a diving trip to Tobago.

Deborah married another diver not long after we met. With her in the UK and us in Switzerland, we haven’t managed to meet up since she had children. Whatever, in Yorkshire speak, she’s a “lovely lass” who definitely deserves a good holiday.

IATA Travel Pass will manage and verify the secure flow of necessary testing or vaccine information among governments, airlines, laboratories, and travellers, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) writes in a press release.
