The Frontier Airlines Airbus 320 jet that carried the nurse/ebola patient made 5 flights before being taken out of service. The jet flew from Cleveland to Dallas, back to Cleveland, then to Ft Lauderdale and Atlanta.
CDC advises that ebola can only be transferred by fluid from a sick, infected person.
People with fevers sweat. Did the sick nurse sweat on the seat that all of the subsequent passengers sat in? She had a fever. Did she sneeze on the airplane and did that fluid end up on her seat or an adjoining area? Did she blow her nose? What did she do with the tissue? Did somebody cleaning the aircraft touch it? Who are those people? Did they go home today? Do they feel ill? Are they sweating, sneezing or barfing on or around people thinking that they just have the flu? Do they know that they were exposed to ebola? Not just the people on the airplane with her...all of the people who sat on or around that seat? Did she use the restroom on the aircraft? Who else used it?
(LA Times)US-based Frontier Airlines said Wednesday it thoroughly cleaned a plane that carried a Dallas health care worker the day before an Ebola diagnosis.
Denver-based Frontier issued a statement in response to news that the unidentified health care worker flew Monday on Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth with 132 passengers.
The airline said it is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to contact all the passengers on the flight.
The passenger "exhibited no symptoms or sign of illness while on Flight 1143, according to the crew," Frontier said.
The Airbus A320 that carried the health care worker was put away for the night on Monday after it carried the woman from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth. But Tuesday morning the plane was flown back to Cleveland and then to Fort Lauderdale, back to Cleveland and then to Atlanta and finally back again to Cleveland, according to Daniel Baker, the chief executive of the flight monitoring site Flightaware.com.
