About 13 of 49 passengers tested positive even though flight was only 17% full
They say their study is "one of few thus far demonstrating in-flight transmission
Out of the 13, 12 were symptomatic
Those 13 passengers went on to infect 46 more people
Masks were utilized by nine of those 13, with one child not wearing a mask
Report did not disclose the airline or where the flight originated
Four of 13 were hospitalized, with one ending up in intensive care.
Four cases were not seated next to any other positive case, had no contact in transit lounge, wore face masks in-flight
Symptoms appeared two days after the flight, and in one case 17 days after
Concludes : In-flight propagation merit further study. Health advisories and airline checks, should preclude travel in those with symptoms. more
