New York: A US woman was quarantined in an aeroplane bathroom for three hours after testing positive for Covid-19 halfway through a flight from Chicago to Iceland, according to media reports

Marisa Fotieo, a teacher from Michigan, said her throat began to hurt halfway through the trip on December 19 so she went to the bathroom to perform a rapid Covid test which confirmed she was infected, WABC-TV reported. Before the flight, Fotieo said she took two PCR tests and five rapid tests, all of which came back negative. But about an hour and a half into the flight, she started to feel a sore throat. “The wheels started turning in my brain and I thought, ”OK, I”m going to just go take a test.” It was going to make me feel better,” Fotieo said. “Immediately, it came

back positive.”

Fotieo tests consistently since she works with an unvaccinated population. When she got her results in the aeroplane bathroom, over the Atlantic Ocean, she said she started to panic. “The first flight attendant I ran into was Rocky. I was hysterical, I was crying,” Fotieo said. “I was nervous for the other people on the plane. I was nervous for myself. I opted to stay in the bathroom because I did not want to be around others on the flight,” Fotieo said.

A note was then put on the bathroom door saying it was out of service, and that was Fotieo”s new seat for the remainder of the flight. CNN contacted Icelandair on Thursday for comment but has yet to hear back.
