Type of Justification: Advice of INTERNAL government advisory committee or group
Evidence/Justification: There are pressures from different sectors (mainly economic) to make the crew more flexible. On the other hand, there are pressures from the health sector (doctors and nurses) to increase the level of safety measures. The government had to make a decision to balance the pressures from both sectors.
