- Passengers were quarantined on the flight while a Ebola Virus response was coordinated by the department of public health officials.
- A HAZMAT LEVEL 4 BIO HAZARD TEAM is scheduled to deep clean the plane.
- Flybe confirmed that all 106 passengers were told to remain on board the above flight upon arrival into Manchester.
Passengers “quarantined” on a plane after a suspected Ebola virus outbreak occurred on board. Dozens of emergency services personnel are at the scene and passengers were not allowed to leave the tarmac. Photos taken from inside the aircraft by passengers showed dozens of emergency services vehicles lined up on the tarmac surrounding the plane.
The African migrant woman that was vomiting blood on the plane had been staying in a small village in Sierra Leone African before boarding the flight. An African migrant was “sick” on board, explosive projectile vomiting throughout the plane, and passengers were quarantined on the flight while a Ebola Virus response was coordinated by the department of public health officials.
A statement by the airline said that, as a precautionary measure on arrival in Manchester and following a passenger on the flight falling sick, they are working closely with the Public Health to collect contact details from all 107 passengers on board exposed to the unknown disease outbreak that occurred. This would allow them to be fully traceable if, passengers contract Ebola virus from the bloody vomit that was spewed onto them during the flight.
More than likely it seems that the airlines and public health suspect Ebola Virus, and the migrant that was from Africa may have Ebola Virus. A HAZMAT LEVEL 4 BIO HAZARD TEAM is scheduled to deep clean the plane. This is standard procedure in suspected Ebola virus outbreak incidents.
The airline said that the aircraft must be cleaned with a special crew arriving with HAZMAT BIO LEVEL 4 Ebola Virus training and the airline will then return the plane to service after the plane is decontaminated by certified EBOLA specialists.
Flybe confirmed that all 106 passengers were told to remain on board the above flight upon arrival into Manchester.
Public Health England also made a statement that they were informed of a possible Ebola Outbreak on a plane, that a migrant was vomiting and became very ill with gastro-intestinal symptoms vomiting and explosive diarrhea during flight. The migrant from Africa was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital for treatment. The airline did not give the hospital name or any more details about the condition of the migrant or how long the migrant was expected to live.
The airline official statement: “We have undertaken a risk assessment and can confirm that any risk of infection to passengers is very low.”
Ebola Outbreak Map tried to contact the airline for more information but were unable to reach the airline. Ebola Outbreak Map tried to email hospitals in the local area for news updates but we were ignored. We can only assume that this african migrant woman has died from Ebola Virus and that the airline and the hospitals do not want to tell the public.
