At least one passenger exhibiting flu-like symptoms and believed to be from Liberia was removed Saturday from a United Airlines plane at New Jersey's Newark International Airport by medical personnel in hazmat suits.

Passengers and crew on board Flight 998 were instructed to remain inside the plane while the sick passenger, a 35-year-old man, and a young girl were removed, Port Authority officials told Fox News.

Passengers were questioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while than man and the girl were taken to a local hospital.. United Airlines said it is working with authorities to accommodate its passengers.

"The crew reported that a person was vomiting, and that Liberians were aboard the plane," a law enforcement source told The New York Post. "The person throwing up is believed to be Liberian."

Details about the number of ill passengers were not immediately clear, but the issue raised fears since the symptoms described are commonly associated with Ebola.

Authorities said the plane's crew and its roughly 250 remaining passengers stayed onboard for about 90 minutes before being allowed to leave allowed to leave.

United Airlines said in a statement the ill passenger was taken to a hospital.

A passenger who was taken off a flight from Brussels to Newark, N.J., today along with his daughter after his sickness triggered fear that he might have Ebola does not have the deadly disease, officials said.

United Airlines Flight 998 was met by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials at Newark Liberty International Airport and the passenger, who was believed to be from Liberia, and his daughter were removed from the plane by a CDC crew in full hazmat gear. They were taken to University Hospital in Newark for testing.

"After an examination by physicians at University Hospital, the symptoms of one individual were found to be consistent with another, minor treatable condition unrelated to Ebola," University Hospital spokeswoman Donna Leusner said. "The second individual, who was traveling with the patient, was asymptomatic. The two individuals will be released with self-monitoring."

A senior federal official said the passenger was exhibiting "flu-like symptoms" on the flight.

According to an official briefed on the situation, preliminary information was that the passenger was vomiting on flight but did not display most of the other symptoms.

What a bunch of paranoid cr@p! :rolleyes:

Here are the "unconfirmed" cases - the scary stuff, I suppose:

  • FL - Hospital officials say the patient is feeling better and has been moved out of isolation.
  • MD - Maryland hospital says patient has malaria, not Ebola
  • VA - UPDATE: 2 Virginia patients tested for Ebola, tests likely negative
  • MA - Massachusetts physician Dr. Rick Sacra, who had been successfully treated for Ebola, has been admitted to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester Saturday night for signs of pneumonia, according to multiple reports.

Frankfurt: Ebola patient arrives in Germany from Sierra Leone. This is an infected doctor from Uganda who was purposely transported to Germany for treatment. If this makes the list, where is the French nurse that was previously transported to and successfully treated in Hamburg?

This is why you leave it to professionals. Bloggers such as the one that put up this paranoid "tracker" simply lack the expertise to inform the public effectively. They're generally speaking just full of themselves and their irrational fear. And they like to spread that fear. Of course, that's just up your alley, son, ain't it?

The Colorado case was Marburg virus, which is related to Ebola and has a similarly high mortality rate. It wasn't diagnosed until several months after the patient recovered. No one else (including her husband and several healthcare workers who were closely involved) had any symptoms. Five years have passed now, and the "outbreak" officially appears to have been contained.

It's not uncommon to have someone return from somewhere in the world and come to the hospital with fever and other symptoms. Sometimes every test under the sun comes back negative. The department of health and CDC get involved, The patient spends weeks in isolation then recovers or sometimes the patient dies and in the end nobody ever knows what it was. Just something we have to live with, or if we can't, go ahead and get the bunker ready.
