    October 15, 2014 FoxNews.comThe second nurse infected with Ebola at a Dallas hospital after treating a man who later died of the virus was flown by private jet Wednesday to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for further treatment in a specialized isolation unit.

Amber Vinson, 29, flew from Cleveland, Ohio, to Dallas, Texas, on Monday, the day before she was diagnosed with Ebola, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

    The second nurse, Amber Vinson, took a commercial flight from Cleveland to Dallas while she was potentially contagious. Vinson, like Pham before her, was on the hospital's "self monitoring" program. Essentially, workers who provided care to the patient have been instructed to monitor themselves for symptoms, use their best judgment to decide when those symptoms are serious, and report themselves to the hospital. This is the process which the CDC and the press have been bragging took only 90 minutes in Pham's case. But that number is meaningless, as it is only how long it took from when she decided...

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn't 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn't officially fall into the group of "high risk" and was allowed to fly. Officials in the U.S. have been trying to calm fears over the Ebola crisis, but time and again events have...
