Emirates flight quarantined in NY after passengers fall ill

Emirates flight quarantined in NY after passengers fall ill

The 12 passengers were ultimately checked out and released on-site. "Airport operations were not impacted during this time", the statement read, according to Fox News.

The CDC reportedly examined passengers away from the main terminal to make sure that a possible contagious disease would not spread.

Flight 203 was travelling with 521 passengers on board when a pilot reported a number were coughing and experiencing high temperatures.

Emirates flight 203 was traveling from Dubai to NY and landed shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday.

A plane from Dubai has been quarantined in NY after about 100 passengers, including some crew members, reported unknown illnesses, officials said Wednesday.

Later Eric Phillips, spokesman for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, confirmed that the sick people were on their way to hospital.

It appears they have the flu and health officials expect to determine exactly what they were sickened by later on Wednesday.

Phillips said health officials are working to determine what caused the sudden outbreak of symptoms on the flight, but the flu is the suspected cause.
