Plane with alleged bomb/contagion aboard

Guess I've seen too many action movies where there's the threat of a bomb or contagion on board (yet no real bomb or contagion on board) but military fighter planes escort the plane away from cities and prevent it from landing via authorization to shoot the plane down if it descends below a certain elevation (ie, 20,000ft).

(Contagion as in a highly contagious lethal disease).

Is there any truth to those precautions? Are planes with alleged bomb or novel contagion aboard disallowed from beginning descent, approaching mainland, landing; are they at risk of being shot down if they attempt any of these??

In the case of a virulent enough contagion to warrant it, the aircraft would be allowed to land and go into quarantine, at which time public health officials and the CDC would investigate using quarantine protocols. They wouldn't shoot it down. They'd lock it down.

Since you put this up, I just have to ad this;

Sorcha Faal ROFL

I realize that Faal is a wanker, hoaxer and probably a shill for some intelligence operation, or just produces junk for the highest bidder, but there it is. Another fake story.
