A Korean Air flight attendant has tested positive for coronavirus, and they worked on flights between Seoul and Los Angeles, South Korean media outlets reported on Wednesday afternoon U.S. time.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said Wednesday the crew member worked on a Korean Air KE958 flight from Israel to Incheon, February 15-16.
The passengers included a South Korea tour group from which 31 coronavirus cases originated, medical reports say.

Korean Air has referred all inquiries about the employee’s itinerary to KCDC, as the authority in charge, adding “We will continue to work closely with the relevant authorities to ensure the safety of our passengers and employees.”
