Federal health officials on Wednesday morning quarantined an Emirates plane at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York after some passengers fell ill during a flight from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Emirates airline on its Twitter page said health officials attended to 10 passengers “as a precaution” after the flight landed at about 9:10 a.m. EDT. But the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 100 of the plane’s 520 passengers received evaluations after they complained of symptoms such as cough and fever.
