Outbreaks of COVID-19 have reportedly hit staff at Southern California's Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, citing data and officials from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, at least 400 cases have been reported among Transportation Security Administration (TSA), American Airlines and Southwest Airlines workers.
The Times said that the majority of those who had tested positive since early June were TSA employees.
However, a TSA official told FOX Business that while the administration is no longer publicly reporting its infection data — because they are consistent with community spread patterns — its infection rate for the airport is being inaccurately reported by around seven times higher than currently being seen there.
