|Chinese Travelers Refuse To Share Plane With Fellow Tourists From Wuhan by Serendipity101: 11:46am On Jan 30, 2020|
In the wake of the Coronavirus epidemic, some Shanghai air travelers refused to share the same plane with some Wuhan passengers – claiming to have seen them take anti-fever medication at a Japanese airport before boarding time.
The passengers who were about 70 in number were set to depart home via the Chubu Centrair International Airport when they started protesting that the airline should not allow 16 passengers residing in Wuhan into the aircraft over the fear that they might infect them with the coronavirus. What seemed like a minor issue at first lasted for over 5 hours before their 2-hour flight commenced.
After being adamant for hours, the protesting passengers finally laid down their guards after they were spoken to by the Chinese Consulate-General in the city of Nagoya. They reluctantly agreed to board the plane with the Wuhan residents after one of them who was spotted a slight fever by a temperature check was removed from the flight.
While it might have seen like the protesters were being inconsiderate, their concerns were valid given that the Coronavirus has killed no fewer than 170 persons in China, and left about 6,000 persons across the world sick.
The airport incident came shortly after Japan authorities confirmed that 2 more persons had been infected with the virus in their country.
The Coronavirus is believed to have originated from the city of Wuhan in China.
