The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been warning American hospitals that Ebola was just a plane ride away. Tuesday the first confirmed case of Ebola has been diagnosed in the United States. The patient had recently been in Liberia and flew to the U.S. before he was symptomatic or contagious. Meanwhile in an attempt to curtail the spread of the deadly virus, British Airways and Air France has suspended flights to Sierra Leone and Liberia.
