If you get sick on a US airplane, you may have Ebola? It appears this is becoming a general assumption these days. The Center for Disease Control and the Southern Nevada Health District cleared Delta Airlines minutes ago. Easrlier six ambulances have surrounded a plane this morning at McCarran International Airport amid reports that a passenger on a Delta flight from New York is showing symptoms similar to Ebola.
Delta Airlines Flight 495 from JFK is at Terminal 1, Gate D42 is the focus of the medical response. A source says at least three people are ill.
UMC spokeswoman D’Anita Cohen says the hospital has been contacted by the airport about two unconfirmed cases of Ebola-like symptoms.
The hospital is ready to place them in their two isolation rooms.
McCarran spokeswoman Christine Crews said the flight was quarantined at the gate “after reports that a passenger who had recently traveled in Africa vomited on board the aircraft.
After a thorough assessment, it has been determined that the affected passenger does not meet the criteria for Ebola.
