Korean Air flight attendant who flew to LA diagnosed with coronavirus

I wonder how many passengers caught the Wuhan Coronavirus on this flight to LA, but don’t know it because they are asymptomatic.


LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A Korean Air flight attendant was diagnosed with coronavirus shortly after working on a flight to Los Angeles, South Korean media is reporting.

The flight attendant worked on a flight from Incheon to Los Angeles and may have spent time in Los Angeles before boarding a return flight. The same person also had recently worked on an Incheon-Tel Aviv route.

Los Angeles County health officials said they are aware of the media reports and are awaiting confirmation from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
