Why wouldn’t they quarenatine the whole plane if they thought there was ebola infected person aboard?
A passenger who was taken off a flight from Brussels to Newark, N.J., today along with his daughter after his sickness triggered fear that he might have Ebola does not have the deadly disease, officials said.
United Airlines Flight 998 was met by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials at Newark Liberty International Airport and the passenger, who was believed to be from Liberia, and his daughter were removed from the plane by a CDC crew in full hazmat gear. They were taken to University Hospital in Newark for testing.
“After an examination by physicians at University Hospital, the symptoms of one individual were found to be consistent with another, minor treatable condition unrelated to Ebola,” University Hospital spokeswoman Donna Leusner said. “The second individual, who was traveling with the patient, was asymptomatic. The two individuals will be released with self-monitoring.”
