2nd Dallas Ebola Patient Flew Frontier Airlines on Monday

2nd Dallas Ebola Patient Flew Frontier Airlines on Monday

The new Ebola patient, Amber Vinson, diagnosed in Dallas last night took a Frontier Airlines flight from Cleveland to DFW airport on Monday. From the New York Times:

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement that “because of the proximity in time between the evening flight and first report of illness the following morning,” it was reaching out to passengers.

The flight was Frontier Airlines flight 1143, the disease centers said, and took place on Monday.

The flight took off from CLE at 6:31pm and arrived in Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport at 8:808pm. The new patient had helped treat Thomas Eric Duncan, the Dallas Ebola patient who died a week ago. The incubation period for all of those who were around Mr. Duncan expires this coming Sunday.
