Shocked passenger spots woman in front of her is Covid-positive after reading her texts

A plane passenger was alarmed after reading the text messages being sent by the woman in front of her to discover that she had had coronavirus.

A Reddit user shared a snap of her fellow passenger’s texts on the platform, which showed her making a rather shocking confession.

Responding to a message from a person called James, the woman replies with a message reading: “We have COVID… shhh.

“That’s why we’re returning home a day early, on the plane now.”

The person sharing the photo, who was presumably the passenger behind the woman, captioned the post: “Is this even legal?”

While some readers were outraged, others accused the photographer or being “nosy” or suggested the message was a hoax.

Commenting on the Reddit thread, one person wrote: “Plot twist: she only typed that because she knows the asshole behind her is reading her messages.”

“Going to have this on my phone next time I fly for the peekers lol,” agreed another.

“I miss the days when people would mind their own business,” another lamented.

However, a few people were on the poster’s side.

One commented: “F*** people who KNOW they have Covid that don’t take precautions to keep other people safe from it.”

“Expose her to the flight attendant. See something, say something,” said another.

Another suggested it wasn’t too much of an unusual situation, commenting: “It happens all the time.

“People don’t want to miss their flight, delay their trips home, go on vacations, etc.. Just assume everyone has it and act accordingly.”

A little more than a week ago, the Mirror reported on a woman who was forced to stay in a plane toilet after finding out she had coronavirus on the flight and notifying staff.

Marisa Fotieo, from Chicago, US, was flying to Iceland when she took a rapid Covid test in a toilet and discovered she had the virus.

She informed a flight attendant who then told her there were not enough empty seats for her to isolate on the plane.

Marisa then offered to stay in the bathroom for the rest of the flight to protect other passengers, NBC News reports.

She said: “I can’t believe I spent four hours in that bathroom, but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.”

Marisa filmed a video of herself inside the bathroom and shared it on Tik Tok, where it has received more than four million views.

The tourist is now quarantining in Iceland for 10 days, while her father and brother, who were also on the plane, continued on to Switzerland after testing negative for Covid.

Speaking about her experience on the Iceland Air flight, she said: “It was a crazy experience.

“I just took my rapid test and I brought it into the bathroom, and within what felt like two seconds there were two lines (indicating a positive test).

“There was 150 people on the flight, and my biggest fear was giving it to them.”
