The woman “exhibited no symptoms or sign of illness while on Flight 1143, according to the crew,” Frontier Airlines said in a statement.
Earlier, she flew from Dallas-Fort Worth to Cleveland on Frontier Flight 1142 on October 10.
The airline said customers who may have traveled on either flight should contact the CDC at 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636). But the CDC statement, contained in the same news release, said the CDC wanted to speak only with passengers of the October 13 flight. The CDC later confirmed to CNN that it is “only interested” in the passengers on Flight 1143.
I’m astounded that any nurse who knew that she had treated a patient with Ebola and was on a 21 day monitoring plan to see if she gets sick would travel. There has been a lot of local news on the Dallas ebola situation since we are not that far away.
Cities/counties need to designate a ‘dirty’ facility to treat ebola…and NOT the best place. Not the place where mainstream care helps most patients for a variety of reasons. It needs to be a disposable location. I don’t mean to sound heartless but these victims would be lined up like hotdogs on the grill with IVdrips, emesis/bed pans.
Using the prime healthcare facility for ebola in any given city or area would shut it down and be an enormous financial deficit in the long run.
