Atlanta, GA (WGCL) — The plane carrying a Dallas nurse with Ebola arrived in Atlanta just before 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday night.
The nurse, 29-year-old Amber Vinson, helped care for Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian in Dallas.
Duncan, the first man diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., died on Oct. 9.
The plane arrived at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, which is a small airport located northeast of Downtown Atlanta.
Vinson walked off the plane in Atlanta in a yellow hazmat suit. She was guided by several doctors as she walked to a nearby ambulance.
After about a 30-minute drive in the ambulance, Vinson arrived at Emory University Hospital around 8:30 p.m. ET.
The flight took off from Dallas just before 6 p.m. ET earlier Wednesday evening.
Vinson flew from Dallas to Cleveland, and back to Dallas before being admitted to Texas Heath Presbyterian on Tuesday after she got sick, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
She flew back to Dallas on Frontier Airlines flight 1143. All 132 passengers who flew on that flight were asked to call the CDC at 1-800-232-4636
Emory treated two previous patients for Ebola who recovered and were eventually released, while they also treated another patient who was last-known to still be at the hospital.
