There was an Ebola scare on US Airways Flight 845 departing from Philadelphia to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Supposedly a person on the plane sneezed and jokingly stated that they were from West Africa. A person reported the incident to flight attendants and as soon as the plane landed in Punta Cana a full hazmat crew boarded the plane. They were not taking chances. It was later confirmed that the joker was not infected with Ebola.
