BREAKING: Second US Health Worker With Ebola Flew Cross Country on Monday
The second US health care worker infected with Ebola flew on a domestic airplane a day before her diagnosis, and health authorities said Wednesday they are seeking to interview 132 people on that flight.
The US Centers for Disease Control said the woman “exhibited no signs or symptoms of illness while on flight 1143, according to the crew,” but the agency wants to speak with passengers anyway to determine if anyone is at risk.
“Because of the proximity in time between the evening flight and first report of illness the following morning, CDC is reaching out to passengers who flew on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth Oct. 13,” the CDC said in a statement.
“Passengers who may have traveled on flight 1143 should contact CDC at 1 800 CDC-INFO (1 800 232-4636).”
