Vomiting passenger cleared of Ebola after CDC investigation at Newark Airport

A plane was briefly quarantined at Newark Liberty International Airport while a medical team examined a sick passenger for signs of Ebola.
A vomiting passenger prompted the quarantine of United Airlines Flight 998 over fears of the deadly Ebola virus after landing at Newark Liberty International Airport early Saturday afternoon.

Two passengers — a father and daughter — believed to be from Liberia were removed from the flight of 255 passengers after flying seven hours from Brussels.


The remaining passengers were allowed to leave after hearing an announcement over the PA system that the man was not contagious, CBS added.

Do I trust the CDC to have diagnosed this properly in a few hours? No abundance of caution here.

2. N.J. Department Of Health: Sick Passenger On Newark Flight Does Not Have Ebola

After landing in Newark at around 12:15 p.m., authorities sealed the plane at Gate 54 and asked the 255 passengers and the plane’s crew to remain on board, the Port Authority said.

At around 1:50 p.m., passengers were allowed off the plane and the sick passenger and his daughter were taken to an area hospital, the Port Authority told 1010 WINS.

The sick man was wearing a surgical mask when he was removed from the plane, Raymond Schraff, a passenger on board the flight, told CBS News. He said the man’s daughter was not.

Schraff said workers from the CDC wore full body protection when they escorted the man off the plane.
An announcement was later made that the man wasn’t contagious, Schraff told CBS News.

Passengers described confusion by airline and airport officials as the plane taxied to the gate, 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten reported.

One passenger said they couldn’t immediately make up their minds about what the proper protocol was.
“Frankly, they made it up as they went along. First they said get out of here, we almost got out. Nope, wait, then we filled out a form which the airline has all this information anyway,” he said.

“The only thing they asked you is to fill in papers and then they don’t know what to do with the papers. It’s amazing that after all these diseases, they still don’t have a clue how to handle this,” another frustrated passenger said.

Passengers aboard the flight were given a yellow sheet of instructions in the event they do experience Ebola symptoms.
