Hmmm ......... might be nothing, might be flu, might be MERS, might be something else.

Yeah, somebody radioed ahead.  It's seems obvious somebody knows more details.  Could be anything...definitely would not feel thrilled to be on that plane.  So I happy I gave up flying.

Here we go again.

It's a matter of when, not if...an infected person just waltzes through wherever...

Damn, should have known!

On Wednesday, US health officials sent an emergency response team with mobile diagnostic equipment to John F Kennedy International Airport in New York after they were told that more than 100 passengers aboard an Emirates airlines flight from Dubai were experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Dr Martin Cetron, director for the division of Global Migration and Quarantine at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told Reuters in a telephone interview that health officials evaluated nearly 549 passengers at the airport, and sent a total of 11 people to a local hospital for more testing.

Ten people were tested for a battery of respiratory viruses and bacteria in hopes of ruling out serious pathogens that could present a public health threat.

Two of them tested positive for an especially virulent type of influenza A virus, and one of the two, who was gravely ill with pneumonia, was co-infected with another respiratory virus, Cetron said. A third person tested positive for a cold virus.

All three had taken part in the Haj, which this year drew 2 million people to Mecca, Cetron said.

The next day, two flights arriving in Philadelphia from Europe were screened by medical teams after 12 passengers reported flu-like symptoms. One of them had visited Mecca for the Haj.

Cetron said health officials in New York had been prepared to quarantine a large group of sick passengers in an area at the airport. From a total of 11 passengers taken to hospital for evaluation, 10 were tested for respiratory symptoms; one showed signs of food poisoning.

"It was a much smaller incident. That's not uncommon," Cetron said. "Often the incoming information from multiple sources can be exaggerated beyond what we really find."

All 10 patients with respiratory symptoms tested negative for the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS, a highly infectious and deadly respiratory infection that was first identified in the Middle East in 2012.


Reading between the lines...no protocol for people who don't complain or do not exhibit alarming symptoms...meaning if bio-weaponized suicidal carriers wanted to, they could infiltrate while early in an infected state with something nasty and extremely contagious and nobody would be radioing ahead to do a quarantine...and the nasty would be well established and spreading by the time they knew something was terribly wrong.

Here's an idea...

  If you believe the CDC that were all good.  I suspect everyone right about now.
