Ebola-stricken nurse Amber Vinson may have been at a more advanced stage of the deadly disease when she flew between Dallas and Cleveland than was previously thought, it today emerged.
The 29-year-old was diagnosed with the virus on Wednesday after helping to treat Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital before he died on October 8.
She had flown out of Dallas-Fort Worth Airport in Texas on Frontier Airlines Flight 1142 alongside 132 other passengers on October 10 to plan her upcoming wedding. She had then returned on October 13.
Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has discovered that Miss Vinson may have had a worse case of Ebola during the two flights than was previously imagined.
The passengers on the other flight are not thought to be at risk for the disease, but Frontier is notifying them anyway. Those flights are:
Flight 2042 on Tuesday morning from Dallas to Cleveland
Flight 1104 on Tuesday afternoon from Cleveland to Fort Lauderdale
Flight 1105 on Tuesday afternoon from Fort Lauderdale to Cleveland
Flight 1101 on Tuesday night from Cleveland to Atlanta
Flight 1100 on Tuesday night from Atlanta to Cleveland

More advanced stage can be either moderate or in worst, most likely moderate as if she had been in last stage i doubt she could have walked on her own.
During a press conference in Summit County on Thursday, the CDC says Amber Vinson may have experienced symptoms on Friday, the day she flew from Dallas, Texas to Cleveland.
Dr. Chris Braden with the CDC says they can “not rule out” that Vinson had symptoms on Oct. 10 and that now the passengers on the flight from Dallas to Cleveland will be “included in the investigation."
. But he said health officials can't rule out the possibility that her illness began last Saturday, or possibly earlier

No. You wait'll the first homeless cadaver is discovered half-eaten by animals. Then you'll know how bad Ebola can be.
