U.S. Ebola Patient Flew Part of Trip from Liberia to Texas on United Airlines

AP– The man hospitalized with Ebola shortly after arriving in the U.S. says he flew part of the way on United Airlines on Sept. 20.

In a statement issued Wednesday, the airline said it learned from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the patient said he flew on United Flight 951 from Brussels to Dulles Airport near Washington. He then flew Flight 822 from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

A Belgian official says the man flew from Liberia to Brussels on Brussels Airlines.

Health officials say there is no risk of infection among other passengers because the man, Thomas Eric Duncan, had no symptoms when he flew.

He sought medical care Sept. 24 in Dallas.
