Officials have confirmed that a woman in her 30s died of the coronavirus while aboard a plane awaiting takeoff.
The unidentified woman was having trouble breathing and was given oxygen before she died. It’s unclear if the Garland, Texas, resident was aware she was infected with the virus before boarding the aircraft, which was heading from Arizona to Texas. She did have underlying high-risk health conditions, according to doctors.
Although the incident occurred three months ago, the Texas county wasn’t alerted that COVID-19 was the cause of death until a few days ago, Judge Clay Jenkins said Sunday.
“I would strongly encourage people to not think they’re invincible from COVID because they don’t think they’re in a high-risk category,” Jenkins said. It’s unclear yet exactly which Arizona airport or airline was involved in the incident.
