Delta Flight 3163 was delayed for 3 hours after bed bug bites were confused for Ebola
Lise Sievers a woman travelling from Uganda led the whole flight to be quarantined after health officials suspected her for having Ebola or Monkeypox. She phoned her mother during a stopover in Detroit and told her that a child she was trying to adopt had red bumps with pus.

The mom called a nearby hospital and told them that her daughter is on a flight back from Uganda and has some red bumps which are pussing and wondered what was required to treat them?

The hospital in turn rung Centre For Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta who did not waste any time on learning of Uganda and Pus in the same sentence. Ambulances, fire trucks and police cars were waiting by the time the plane touched Midway International Airport.

Health officials got on board fully clad in masks and took photos of Lise Sievers who they suspected of having a rare and fatal disease. They sent the photos to the US. After severla hours of waiting, the results were back and it was good news, the disease was not deadly but bed bug bites.

It is then that passengers started leaving the jet. Lise Sievers had been to Uganda but bug bites led her to break out in a rash.

The incident occurred on Delta flight 3163. Passengers were kept aboard the plane for about three hours before being allowed off. "I was visiting Uganda where I’m adopting two special needs kids" Lise Sievers said.
