Woman in her 30s has died of COVID-19 after boarding a flight three months ago from Arizona to Texas, reports the TheHill.com.
To quote Buzzfeed News, the website says the Garland, Texas woman was expected to take off from the plane in July.
Assign information to NBC 5 Dallas-Forth Worth, TheHill.com said she had difficulty breathing and received oxygen before she died.
It is not known if the woman knew she was infected before boarding the plane, but she had underlying health issues that put her at higher risk, according to Dallas County.
Several protocols have been put in place to make air travel safe during the pandemic, including temperature screening and COVID testing at some airports.
Judge Clay Jenkins said despite the three-month passage, Texas County had only been made aware of the cause of death days before.
Neither Arizona airport nor the airline involved have been identified.
