James Potok, a YouTuber based in Ontario, pretended he was infected with coronavirus while travelling on a WestJet flight from Toronto to Montego Bay

30 Minutes before the plane was set land in Montego Bay James Potok stood up and announced to fellow passengers he had recently returned from Wuhan in China the epicenter of the Cornoravirus outbreak and was not feeling well.

Immediately flight stewards approach the man and put a mask on the man and moved him to another section of the plane.

James attempted to explain that he in fact was not sick and had never been to China, unfortunately for James it was to late and aircraft emergency procedures had been put into place.

His stunt forced the plane with 250 passengers to be turn around and return to Toronto, where James was greeted by police who arrested him and charged him with mischief and breach of recognisance.
