I was over at The Daily Caller again this morning. I know, I know, but I only sustained minor injuries when a popup ricocheted.
Anyway, it turns out that the second Dallas nurse to be infected with the virulent Ebola virus, flew on a Frontier Airlines flight just hours before being diagnosed.
The second Dallas hospital worker diagnosed with Ebola flew with 132 other passengers the day before her diagnosis.
The nurse, identified as 29 year-old Amber Vinson, flew on Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas-Fort Worth on Monday evening, just one day before reporting her symptoms to the authorities, the Centers for Disease Control and Frontier Airlines said in a statement Wednesday.

“The healthcare worker exhibited no signs or symptoms of illness while on Flight 1143, according to the crew,” the statement said. Vinson was admitted to the hospital Tuesday with a fever, one of the earliest signs of Ebola.
The CDC is now belatedly attempting to track down and interview all 132 passengers on the flight, and wants all passengers to call 800-CDC-INFO (800-232-4636) to begin interviews this afternoon. (RELATED: New CDC Ebola Screening Wouldn’t Have Detected First US Case)
UPDATE: YouTube yanked the video I originally posted below so I had to dig deep.
Texas, I love you guys, I truly do.
But where do you find these hang-fires? Let’s stipulate that anyone who works for these nimrods is a hero; they’d have to be to work for these incompetents.
Hello, Dallas Presbyterian? You’re letting health workers fly after spending days in an infected environment? You’ve been more concerned with not euthanizing a puppy than protecting the public from even the remotest possibility of spreading the infection?
What part of VIRULENT TRANSMISSIBLE DISEASE do you not understand?
Note: The Linkage has become too research-intensive, so just a couple today.
