Amber Vinson, the second Dallas health care worker infected with Ebola, took a flight from Cleveland to Dallas just one day before she reported symptoms of the virus, Reuters reported. The CDC is reaching out to all 132 passengers on the flight.
Vinson, who was identified by her family according to reports, was among those who cared for initial Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, health officials said early Wednesday after confirming her infection.
Frontier Airlines 1143 flight landed in Dallas Monday night. Vinson reportedly was not showing any symptoms of the virus—she claims she first came down with a fever on Tuesday—during the flight, though the airlines is working with the CDC to contact anyone who was on board.
DALLAS - Officials say a second health care worker who's tested positive for Ebola was in isolation at a Dallas hospital within 90 minutes of the worker finding she had an elevated temperature.
The patient also recently visited her family in Akron, according to Ohio Health officials.
The woman from Dallas visited the state from October 8-13. She flew from Cleveland. There were 132 passengers on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas-Fort Worth on Monday.
Multiple national media outlets have identified the woman as Amber Vinson.
"Ohio has swiftly acted and is working with the CDC and Summit County health officials to identify people who may have been in close contact with the health care worker and implement quarantine as necessary. In addition, Ohio is working with the airline to identify individuals on her return flight to Dallas," said an ODH news release.
