U.S. Ebola Cases We Haven’t Heard About, An airplane transporting a doctor infected with the deadly Ebola in West Africa lands near Atlanta on Tuesday. …
An undisclosed number of people who’ve been exposed to the Ebola virus – not just the four patients publicly identified with diagnosed cases – have been evacuated to the U.S. by an air ambulance company contracted by the State Department.
“We moved a lot of other people who had an exposure event,” said Dent Thompson, vice president of Phoenix Air Group. “Many times these people are just fine, they just had an exposure. But you have to treat it as though the disease is present.”
How many exposed patients have been flown from West Africa to the U.S.? Thompson said medical privacy laws and his company’s contract with the State Department prevent him from revealing the figure.
“I’m not avoiding it,” Thompson told Yahoo News. “I’m just not allowed to talk about it.”
