I hope it is AF1 and the kenyan has some kind of jungle rot.

Quarantined Delta flight at Midway given all-clearBy
A passenger on a Delta Air Lines plane that was grounded and quarantined at Chicago’s Midway airport Thursday afternoon said they’ve been given the all-clear.
“A couple of people came on board, went to one of the passengers, took photographs of her and of the sores that apparently existed. I couldn’t tell from where I was sitting what those were,” one passenger, David Grober, told NBC Chicago. “They sent those photos apparently out to the [Centers for Disease Control]. We waited about another hour and finally gave us the all-clear and told us that it looked like they were bug bites and not an communicable disease.”
Delta flight 3163 landed shortly after 3:30 p.m. but passengers were unable to deplane. It originated in Detroit about an hour earlier.
Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride said crews were called to treat a passenger with an unspecified medical issue. The CDC also confirmed that it was investigating reports of a “possible illness.”

From the sky, NBC Chicago’s helicopter could see the aircraft on the ground at Midway’s gate A7. It was surrounded by medical and emergency personnel. The jet bridge was not connected to the plane.
Someone purportedly on the plane posted a photo to Twitter showing an official wearing a face mask.
“Still in quarantine. They say it’s not serious,” Kayla Maree Sanders wrote in one Tweet.
Midway remains open.
somebody aboard got ebola?
A flight from where?
Anything that’s been in Chicago should be quarantined and boiled.
Thanks for you post!
Let's hope it's a false alarm.
Those aren’t sores. They’re bruises from the TSA shakedown...
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
It says passenger may have been from Ghana.
I prefer irradiation and burning.
I hope it wasn't swelling buboes with a black discharge, and a nasty, frothy pink cough.
I’ll start digging the pit.
Someone may be plotting a bio attack and DHS are looking for any carrier... I feel it in my bones. This story worries me.
On a related note.....something has always puzzled me about the folks who advocate open borders and no penalty for working here illegally.
Before being allowed to come to this country to work legally, there is a rather thorough and expensive medical exam to go through.
A lot of illegals find work in restaurants...goodness knows what diseases they bring with them. Don't people care about that?
