Reporting Deaths or Illness in Flight

42 CFR 71.21 requires the pilots of international flights to the United States to report before arrival any deaths or illnesses (as defined in the regulations) among passengers or crew to CDC’s quarantine station at or nearest to the airport of arrival. This may be done by a report to ATC or the company using established means for that purpose.
