DEVELOPING: A plane reportedly is being quarantined after landing in Chicago, and the investigation is said to involve the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Aviation officials in Chicago say the city's health department and fire department have responded to a flight that landed at Midway International Airport, but local police and fire officials told Fox News the CDC is handling it.

But the TSA has to go after white, 4 year old and 84 year old men, women and kids! They are the real threats!/s
They're just racist. (That's all)
Detroit. An abundance of caution is certainly justified.
You make a great point and one that Obama and his appointed thugs don’t seem to care or worry about.
Lise Sievers blames her recent trip to Africa for causing her Delta Air Lines plane to be grounded and quarantined at Chicago’s Midway airport Thursday afternoon.
“I was visiting Uganda .. where I’m adopting two special needs kids. So we stayed at a hotel the other night and I think it left friends on my body. My son, who’s four and a half, had pustules on him,” Sievers said after deplaning Flight 3163. [Dumb bi+(#]
The flight originated from Detroit, but
passengers were kept on the plane outside Gate A7 for more than two hours after landing. From the sky, NBC Chicago’s helicopter could see the aircraft on the ground, surrounded by medical and emergency personnel.
“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.
Another passenger 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.
Grober said the passengers were later given the all-clear, a fact later confirmed by The Centers for Disease Control in a statement:
“Passenger with rash illness has been examined, photos sent to CDC for analysis and based on info gathered has been released along with all other passengers.”
The CDC added that “appropriate follow up” with Sievers was to come.
“I have to say, Chicago Police Department, everybody just responded very well and all the passengers were great,” Sievers said.
Detroit? the whole place should be quaranteed,
check points on all highways.
Stop the Zombie invasion NOW!
Will do but the last time I flew was in 1999. The good old days compared to today.
Things that make you go "hmmmm". Where's the "dislike" button on this site?
Well, Gd bless this woman adopting two special needs kids. I’m sorry she got big bites that scared everyone but she is an Angel.
Detroit to Chicago by car = 4 hours.
Why would you fly that?
Hey EVERYBODY, look over here,
Then look over HERE
Distraction over-load and over-whelm.
I wonder what they were worried that it could be? Smallpox? Actually my big paranoid fear is that the USDA has allowed us to all be exposed to Mad Cow and that is why people are becoming more crazy by the day. Seriously, I bet the people with Obama stickers have sponge for brain and drool.
What the hay when we already have illegal immigrants bringing super tuberculosis, polio, LEPROSY for heavens sake, disgusting parasites usually only seen in third world countries, etc. When, not having enough of our own with HIV/AIDS we give people from Africa, Haiti, etc a special immigration green light just for those with these diseases. When cobras, Russells vipers, mambas, boomslangs, bushmasters, carpet snakes, Gaboons, etc, start being found here in breeding colonies, im off to some small under the radar country in eastern europe! I think they only have one relatively harmless viper, like england’s adder! But I wouldn’t go to OZ if you paid me, bought me a mansion, and gave me free money for life!
” Distraction over-load and over-whelm. “
The forgotten lesson to the fable, “The Boy Who Cried ‘Wolf!’”, is that, in the end, there *was* a wolf...
Or, as Donald Rumsfeld so eloquently put it - “We have to be right every time — they only have to get lucky once”...
Complacency - and especially that brand of complacency that finds it satisfying to sneer at the vigilant and prepared - is the true enemy.....
I think they were worried because the lady had just been to Uganda to adopt two special need kids and she had a rash.
“...took photographs of her and of the sores that apparently existed...”
Wouldn’t they do cultures and other physical tests, instead? Just asking...
I perdict that we’re all gonna die!
Hell they fly from Detroit to Lansing which is only an hour and change.
I’ve never flown anyway. Public transportation is for people who don’t want to die alone.
Post #26 pretty well explains it.
