A Texas woman reportedly died from COVID-19 while on a flight from Arizona, authorities have announced this week following the unfortunate incident.
The woman who is yet to be identified but appears to be in her 30s began to have difficulty breathing while on the tarmac awaiting takeoff on July 25, news station WFAA reported.
From reports gathered, the Texas woman had underlying health issues and was administered oxygen but later died on board according to the outlet report.
Currently, it’s not clear what airport she was taking off from or what airline she was flying back to Texas through.
Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins hinted on Sunday that local officials were previously informed about her death, but only learned she actually died from the coronavirus a few days ago.
“We don’t know a whole lot. We may not know if she was aware she was sick,” Jenkins hinted at a press conference on COVID-19 while noting that the woman contracted the virus while in Arizona and said her case was a “reminder that there is no age restriction in coronavirus.”
