It says the sick passenger was let go for self monitoring with no apparent test done for Ebola, as it usually takes a couple of days to get the results back -- if previous cases are any indication. And since when is vomiting a symptom of other minor conditions and not Ebola?
Does this remind anyone of sending a patient home in Dallas that ended up coming back with Ebola? Why wouldn't they test for Ebola instead of just going by symtoms?
And in my opinion the fact that the daughter does not have symptoms doesn't mean squat as we know the incubation period is 20 some days.
If i was still in the medical field I would quarantine this individual and his daughter until the test came back negative.
Passenger Paul Chard tweeted a photo of emergency responders on the plane.
The possibility of a new case was knocked down later Saturday by the New Jersey Department of Health.
In a statement, it said that University Hospital "in coordination with federal, state and local public health officials evaluated two individuals who arrived" Saturday afternoon.
"The symptoms of one individual were found to be consistent with another, minor treatable condition unrelated to Ebola," the health department said. "The second individual, who was traveling with the patient, was asymptomatic."
