Althogh the CDC has not spelled out Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), the location and departure by multiple muslims visiting Mecca maybe the
cause. sEric Phillips, press secretary for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, states that " a "flu outbreak" in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and said that
might be a possibility, stating, "It appears some of the ill passengers came from Mecca before getting on in Dubai."
Passenger Erin Sykes twittered, ""worst flight ever," saying on Twitter that the plane "was basically a flying infirmary. Many of these people should
never have been allowed to board." The well known rap person Vanilla Ice was also on the plane, and live-tweeted his experiences, posting video of the
police and emergency services on the ground.
Mayor DeLazio of New York allowed over 100's of people from the flight to leave the quarantine area. "The aircraft was carrying around 521
passengers... and... officials allowed people to disembark only after checking each one for symptoms."
We'll see where this goes.
