Travelers on a Southwest Airlines trip in Las Vegas wore masks over their mouths as another explorer was accompanied off the plane after indicating influenza-like symptoms.

The airline affirmed to Fox News that while the move was made out of “an abundance of caution,” it was also made “in light of recent concerns for the coronavirus.” The evil traveler had purportedly recently traveled to Beijing.

Medicinal officials met the plane when it landed in Las Vegas, NBC 4 reports. As per the news outlet, the traveler alluded to a medicinal facility for evaluation. They had allegedly been screened for the virus in Mexico and Las Vegas.

The traveler was released after a medicinal evaluation.

In an announcement acquired by Fox News, a representative for Southwest Airlines affirmed, “Local medical personnel met Flight 2889 once it arrived at the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport from Las Vegas on Saturday due to reports of an ill customer. Out of an abundance of caution, and in light of the recent concerns of the coronavirus, our crew followed recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control for responding to concerns to ensure the customer, and those traveling with them, receive the assistance or support they may need.”

Fox News previously revealed that amid the continuous coronavirus flare-up, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shown posters clarifying the symptoms in both English and Chinese at 14 American airports to raise awareness of the ongoing virus.

The “health alert,” coordinated at travelers from Wuhan, China, teaches individuals to counsel with a doctor on the off chance that they’re experiencing a fever, cough or trouble breathing within two weeks of leaving the now-quarantined city.
