Health officials seeking 30 passengers on Toronto-bound flight who may have been in contact with man who had coronavirus symptoms. Toronto public health officials are tracking down almost 30 passengers who sat within a two-metre radius of a man who had coronavirus symptoms while travelling by plane to Toronto. “It’s just a little under 30,” said Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto’s medical officer of health, when asked by the Star for the number of passengers her office is contacting. She added that some of those passengers are likely outside the city. The passengers are being contacted by phone, informed that they may have been exposed to the coronavirus, told of the symptoms to look for and advised to seek medical treatment if necessary, de Villa said in a phone interview.
