Plane quarantined at airport over Ebola scare after passengers vomit

Emirates Flight 237 was surrounded by emergency service vehicles at Boston Logan Aiport as haz-mat teams boarded the plane.

The flight originated in Dubai.

None of the people on board the jet were thought to have come from West Africa.

At 9:44PM passenger Tracy Barahona tweeted: “Ok just announced that all patients of concern have been removed from plane.”

A spokesman for the airport said the five passengers were “exhibiting flu-like” symptoms.

The ill passengers are believed to be Saudi Arabian.

Logan is not one of the five US airports currently performing Ebola screenings on passengers.
So far over 4,000 people have died from the virus.

The US has been in a state of red alert after a nurse in Texas contracted Ebola while treating a dying patient.

Nina Pham, 26, became infected while tending to Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national who passed away last week.
