As the first US case of the MERS virus has been confirmed in a man who flew from Saudi Arabia to Chicago via the UK, health officials sought to advise Britons who may have traveled on the same flight as the affected passenger.
The man, a healthcare worker, traveled via a British Airways flight on April 24 from Riyadh to London, where he changed flights at Heathrow airport to fly to the US.
He landed in Chicago and took a bus to Indiana, before experiencing respiratory symptoms a few days later.
The risk is very low and human to human transmission of MERS-CoV is extremely rare, but we would ask any passengers from British Airways Flight 262 on 24 April to contact NHS 111 if they’re experiencing respiratory symptoms or have felt unwell since their flight.
