They are reporting the patient left Liberia on the 19th.
He arrived in Dallas on the 20th.
......Staying with family members
Starting feeling ill on the 24th.
Went to the hospital on the 26th. (informed hospital he had just returned from Liberia)
........He was sent home.
He was taken to the hospital by ambulance on the 28th.
Why did they send him home on the 26th when he was showing symptoms & knowing where he had been?
The person, an adult who was not publicly identified, developed symptoms days after returning to Texas from Liberia and showed no symptoms on the plane, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said the patient came to the U.S. to visit family and has been hospitalized since the weekend.

I'm going to make a wild guess and say that the Patients home is in one of the infected countries and came to visit family. If he had been a U.S citizen returning home there would be no confusion.
The free travel, with the exception of checking for fever before a flight out will be a contentious inquiry for our government officials to have to deal with.
