BREAKING: Liberia officials say they will prosecute man who brought Ebola to US for lying on health form.
DALLAS (AP) -- Liberia plans to prosecute the airline passenger who brought Ebola into the U.S., alleging that he lied on a health questionnaire about not having any contact with an infected person, authorities said Thursday.
Thomas Eric Duncan filled out a series of questions at the airport about his health and activities in the weeks before his flight. On a Sept. 19 form obtained by The Associated Press, he answered no to all of them.
Among other questions, the form asked whether Duncan had cared for an Ebola patient or touched the body of anyone who had died in an area affected by Ebola.
And How would I not be exposing others to it by making my way through a crowded city then into a hospital? When I have the simplistic of systems (which has been many years since) I stay in and away from other folks.
Hate to sound callous but If you were to die alone your rotting corpse/infected garbage etc. left in your house would be a huge bio hazard. Animals, neighbors, homeless types or criminals might come in, find you. Neighbors/family would report it but criminals not so much. Probably not until they're vomiting/crapping their pants and images of you finally gets the better of them.

Wouldn't this be the 2nd patient? I thought the first one arrived in Atlanta???
The rumors come just a day after the first Ebola case was confirmed in Texas after a person traveled from Africa back to the U.S. and later had symptoms of the disease.
