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.

The explosion sent 12 people to the hospital with injuries. The extent of their injuries has not been released as of yet.
