New York, NY — (RT) Passengers have been quarantined on board an Emirates airplane at JFK airport in New York, after 100 reportedly fell seriously ill during a flight from Dubai.

Emirates Flight 203 from Dubai arrived at 9 a.m. ET Wednesday with the pilot expressing concerns over dozens of passengers sick with fevers over 100 degrees F (37.7 C) and coughing, according to local reports.

The plane was met by officials from the Port Authority Police and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a staging area to check passengers.

NYPD Counter-terrorism said it was “monitoring” the quarantine in case the incident progressed above a medical situation and that it was working with the Port Authority and Federal partners.

The aircraft is not going to a terminal, instead being directed to a hard-stand area as emergency medical response teams investigate the cause of the illness.

Photographs tweeted by passengers inside the plane show dozens of ambulances and police vehicles parked and waiting as the aircraft landed.
