Plane carrying sick Swede isolated
A plane flying from Portugal to Copenhagen on Wednesday was held in isolation for several hours after landing at its destination. Shortly before touch-down, a Swedish woman on board admitted that she had meningitis, according to police at the airport.
Eventually, the woman was taken to the hospital, and the passengers were allowed to leave the plane.
Meningitis, of which there are different forms, can be highly contagious and life-threatening.
