United Airlines has confirmed the first Ebola patient in the United States reached the country on one of its flights. The patient, who arrived in Dallas from Liberia, is believed to have flown United Airlines from Brussels to Washington Dulles on Flight 951 and Washington Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth on Flight 822. The US Centres for Disease Control & Prevention, however, were quick to point out there is “zero” risk to other passengers on the flights, as the patient only began to display symptoms of the disease in the days following his arrival.
