No, supposedly he didn't exhibit symptoms while been screened in the airport, (or the airport was no doing a good job of screening people from infected areas), so he would not have been infectious during that time.
So is a big chance that he didn't infected anybody during traveling.

What if he caught the ebola from someone else who was on that flight? He might not be patient zero. He might be patient one. Patient zero could be someone else. There are lots of things we don't know for sure yet ...
Although dogs are susceptible to Ebola, the CDC concluded that "infected dogs are asymptomatic", meaning that they do not develop symptoms. During the early phase of their infection, however, they can spread the disease to humans and other animals through licking, biting, urine, and feces. However, the good news is that once the virus is cleared from the dog it is no longer contagious. Dogs do not die from Ebola infections.
To date there have been no documented infections in felines, meaning that our domestic cats are probably safe from it.

Like I said and evident by the posts in this thread people aren't getting it!!!!! You don't need fast food workers to spread this! OUR HOSPITALS could very well be the first places this thing spreads and overwhelms. Anyone that works in one nowadays will understand.
Wanna know how many metal cargo containers of extra food, water, IV bags, N95s etc. my hospital has in case of emergency? Lol zero, zilch, nada! We have at most maybe a few days of supplies on any given day. And we run out of stuff we use the most of all the time.
You should have seen the "earthquake kits" they stocked each floor with a few years ago! They must have got them in bulk from the 99 cents store. Trust me people most hospitals have idiots running them!!!!!
Could he be carrying a mutated strain that has a shorter incubation period?
