Ryanair plane in Dublin disinfected after two people fall ill on flight

The incident comes amid fears of the global spread of the coronavirus.

A Ryanair plane had to be disinfected after two people fell ill on a flight from Poznan to Dublin.

Emergency services also attended the scene of the incident that took place on Monday.

Passengers on board the flight took to social media to share the news that their flight had been affected.

Both of the passengers who became ill on board the flight later tested negative for any virus.

Ryanair issued a statement to JOE on Tuesday afternoon, which reads:

"The crew of this flight from Poznan to Dublin (17 Feb) called ahead to request medical assistance upon arrival after two passengers became ill onboard.

"As a precautionary measure, the aircraft was met by emergency services. Upon assessment by medical staff, it was deemed safe for passengers to disembark. Further medical examinations were carried out on the two passengers in question, who tested negative for any virus.

"In line with procedures and also as a precautionary measure, the aircraft was disinfected before returning to service."

This comes after news emerged that there was a number of Irish passengers on board two ships where the coronavirus has been detected.
