Second Ebola-Infected Nurse ID’d; Flew Domestic Flight Day Before Diagnosis

Reported by Fox News October 15, 2014

The second nurse infected with Ebola at a Texas hospital was identified Wednesday as 29-year-old Amber Vinson, while authorities expressed concern that she took a domestic flight — reportedly to prepare for her wedding in Cleveland — just one day before coming down with symptoms of the deadly disease.

“The second health care worker should not have been allowed to travel by virtue of being in an exposed group,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Dr. Thomas Frieden said in a telebriefing Wednesday. “Although she had no symptoms or fever [that met the threshold] of 100.4, she did report that she took her temperature and found it to be 99.5.”
