President Trump will address the nation today regarding the new coronavirus and the threat to America where he will also take questions from reporters.

One hopes rude Jim Acosta treats the situation with the gravity and respect it deserves rather than showboat as he did in India.

But before Trump can educate the nation on the next steps we must take to keep this virus in check, a new report shows how difficult that will be.

According to Fox LA, a flight attendant who flew in and out of Los Angeles Airport has tested positive for coronavirus.

She flew multiple times and she visited LA’s Korea Town. She also flew to Israel. The South Korean cases are growing and we may need to start banning travel to certain countries.

From FOXLA:

A Korean Air flight attendant tested positive for coronavirus after working on flights in and out of Los Angeles, according to reports from South Korean media.

The flight attendant worked flights between Los Angeles International Airport and Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea, on Feb. 19 and 20, the reports stated.

The woman had also serviced a flight from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Seoul on Feb. 15, South Korea’s Center for Disease Control said.

The Times of Israel reported that the flight attendant was in Israel before coming to L.A., where it’s believed she spent time walking around Koreatown before boarding on a return flight to Incheon, South Korea.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is aware of the Times of Israel article and is investigating, but has yet to confirm these reports.

Now, Korean Air is allowing customers to change flights free of charge as the World Health Organization’s declared “global emergency” continues to spread causing fear everywhere.

The news comes after a U.S. soldier stationed at Camp Carroll in South Korea tested positive for coronavirus. This marks the first time a U.S. service member has tested positive for the virus.
