“I just took my rapid test and I brought it into the bathroom, and within what felt like two seconds there were two lines [confirming a positive result],” أخبرت اليوم in an interview.
To avoid infecting the 150 other people on the flight, Marisa locked herself in the plane toilet for the remaining five hours of the journey.
The video has had more than 4m views, 1.5m likes and more than 3,000 comments from people sharing their sympathy with her.
كتب شخص واحد: “Thanks for being responsible and letting the crew know! Many people would’ve pretend like it didn’t happen or as if it was a false positive.”
وعلق آخر: “Feel better! I found out I was directly exposed as I was sitting on a plane so I can relate. Sending you love!”
