A picture of a woman texting "we have covid shhh" on a plane has the internet outraged. The plane passenger who read the text message over her fellow passenger's shoulder was left horrified.

While sharing her story on Reddit anonymously, she said that she hadn't meant to spy on the passenger but she couldn't help but read what the woman had typed in front of her. In the message, the plane passenger, who has not been identified, explained they decided to return from their holiday early because they had become infected with the virus. The woman who posted photos of the woman typing the message on the flight, couldn't believe that the passenger boarded the plane even after knowing that they had tested positive for the virus.

A Reddit user, who goes by the name tristydotj, shared photos, captioning it: “Caught this woman sitting in front of me on a plane sending some very alarming texts.” In the photo, the woman can be seen texting and the message reads: “We have COVID…Shhh. That’s why we are coming home a day early. On the plane.” The second picture shows a message that reads: “When we got to the hockey game last night you either had to have proof of a vaccine or a negative test. We had neither so that guy let me sneak in sharing nana’s but he made dad go next – and get a test. They tested him twice and… positive."

'People wonder why cases are rising'

The post sparked a debate on Reddit, as people were divided over whether the woman should have read the message and posted it online. There were also those who believed the woman sitting in front was probably making it up as she knew someone was reading her messages. One said: "To be fair, on the subway once I clearly saw the girl next to me reading my texts so I typed out something deranged just to get her to move away from me." And a second wrote: "Plot twist: she only typed that because she knows the a*****e behind her is reading her messages." While a third added: "People act like this doesn’t happen all the time. Privacy screens all the way." "Taking a photo of someone else’s screen on a plane? Legal," a fourth user said. "Flying on a plane with COVID? Probably also legal. Both are b******t narcissistic behaviours."

However, one concerned Reddit user chastised the passenger for spreading the virus, as they wrote: "F**k that lady, expose her to the flight attendant. See something, say something." The post also found its way to Twitter where the passenger who wrote the messages got an earful from the social media users. "People wonder why cases are rising," one of them wrote, while another said, "'We have Covid … shhh' is beyond creepy." A third commented, "That lady really said “we have Covid…shhh” so just imagine the number of ppl going out sick & know it".




As per the new CDC guidelines, even asymptomatic people should isolate for five days and wear a mask around others. The statement read: “The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to the onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after. Therefore, people who test positive should isolate for five days and, if asymptomatic at that time, they may leave isolation if they can continue to mask for five days to minimize the risk of infecting others.”
