Infected US Tourists Denied Flight Then Board Bus From Mexico, Husband On Ventilator, GoFundMe Beg Posted

Baton Rouge’s ABC News affiliate reports:

A family’s trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, turned into an absolute nightmare when three of them tested positive for COVID-19 before boarding their flight home to Baton Rouge. Yolanda Comager says her husband is on a breathing machine after testing positive. He and two of their daughters were not allowed to fly home.

Currently, air passengers traveling to the United States are required to have a negative COVID test before they board a plane. Comager says they were tested about an hour before boarding. That’s when they got the bad news.

Comager found out that they did not need a negative COVID-19 test to travel by land and booked her husband and two daughters on a bus to El Paso, TX. She then hopped in a car and drove by herself to Texas to pick up her family. But while on the bus to Texas, her husband got worse.

Read the full article. As you’ll see, the husband was taken off the bus and put on a ventilator in a Chihuahua hospital. The family claims their insurance was not accepted in Mexico and they’ve issued a money beg. The wife, who says she had COVID in the past, has now tested positive in Texas. An update to the story says the husband has since been transferred to a New Orleans hospital where he remains intubated.
