Korean Airlines Flight Attendant Diagnosed with Coronavirus After Flying in and Out of Los Angeles

A Los Angeles based flight attendant working for Korean Airlines has reportedly been diagnosed with the Coronavirus. The name of the flight attendant has not been released that we can find, only that it is a 24-year-old woman, who was diagnosed Tuesday in southern Seoul, according to the Korea Joongang Daily newspaper.

Based on scoop from CBS Los Angeles, the flight attendant had worked flights between LAX and Seoul–Incheon International Airport on Feb. 19 and 20, according to South Korean media outlets. We also know that this flight attended serviced a flight from Tel Aviv to Seoul, South Korea on February 15th. CBS local also reported:

She may have contracted the virus from a South Korean church group who were on a pilgrimage to Israel, the Yonghap News Agency reports.

So far, 30 members of that church group have been diagnosed with coronavirus, according to South Korean health authorities.

Korean Air has closed its operations center at Incheon Airport in order to disinfect the area.

Due to the unpredictable, potentially severe nature of COVID-19, Americans are being advised to be prepared for a possible outbreak and the concomitant disruptions to both supply chains and life in general within the U.S. as we do not know all the details of how bad it could possibly get yet.

Recently Democrats took to their pedestals, along with Mitt Romney to insinuate that somehow President Trump hasn’t done enough to prepare for the possible epidemic, without detailing exactly what he should do in addition to the many precautions the United States has already taken. This is likely just a political move to try and paint the president in poor light, just in case it gets worse, so the left can use it as fodder in the upcoming election for president in November.
