Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced this Wednesday that a second nurse has been infected with the Ebola Virus. The nurse was one of 76 who came in contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the first man to be diagnosed with Ebola in the US. He died at Texas health Presbyterian Hospital last week. Nina Pham was another healthcare worker who tested positive for the virus.

On October 14th Amber Vinson, 29, was put into isolation. She traveled by air the night of October 13th before she reported symptoms, states the CDC. However, she did report a “low-grade’ fever of 99.5 before flying, but did not exhibit symptoms until the next day, after she landed.

“The fact that patient number two did not have a fever until the next day, did not have nausea or vomiting on the plane, suggests to us that the risk to anyone on the plane would have been extremely low. “But we are going and will always put in extra measures of safety,” stated Tom Friedman, Director of the CDC.

The CDC is hoping to interview all of the 132 passengers on the Frontier Airlines flight from Cleveland to Dallas-Fort Worth.

Frontier Airlines stated, “The aircraft received a thorough cleaning per our normal procedures, which is consistent with CDC guidelines prior to returning to service the next day. It was also cleaned again in Cleveland last night.”

Amber’s apartment is also being cleaned and decontaminated. She lived alone and had no pets. She remains in isolation and her condition is stable. She will soon be transferred to Emory hospital, in Atlanta.

This is a Developing Story.
