The incident occurred U.S. Airways plane flying from Philadelphia to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Shortly before landing, an American man began to cough and told some passengers that he’s sick of Ebola, adding that he visited Africa.
Upon landing, the aircraft was stormed by a team of doctors wearing protective suits that insulated passengers. They were stuck for two hours on the plane until they learned that it is a bad joke. The American was not suffering from Ebola, nor visited any African country, affected by the epidemic.
