Delta did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.
The Tampa Bay Times also pointed out that the extent of the injuries was not clear. TMZ obtained video that was purportedly from the incident that showed a woman confronting a man for not wearing a mask. The man told the woman, who was also not wearing a mask, that he was eating. The woman in the video could be seen striking the man at least once, the report said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that airlines should keep face mask rules in place for the forseeable future.
“We want to make sure people keep their masks on. I think the idea of taking masks off, in my mind, is really not something we should even be considering,” Fauci said.
