Boss, Coworkers of Texas Ebola Patient: He Knew He Was Infected, Flight To US Was Desperate Attempt To Survive

Once again showing the flawed nature of the screening.
A Liberian man who traveled to the United States four days after having contact with a symptomatic Ebola victim in Monrovia “knew he had Ebola,” according to his former boss, who said he abruptly left his job before the incident.
In interviews with the Liberian Observer, one of the nation’s largest newspapers, both Thomas Eric Duncan’s former boss, Henry Brunson, and an unnamed coworker agree that they believe Duncan knew he had Ebola when he boarded a plane out of Monrovia with a final destination in Texas. Brunson noted that, having come into contact with a pregnant woman who died hours after her interaction with Duncan, he knew of his disease. “If he were in Liberia, he was going to surely die,” Brunson told the paper, saying he was “glad” that Duncan was in a country with adequate medical resources.
Duncan worked as a driver for Brunson at the FedEx contractor SafeWay Cargo until mid-September. According to the Observer, Duncan was involved in a car accident at the end of the tenure at the company, and, according to workers, “having acquired an American visa, he did not care and never returned to work afterwards.”

Thank You Breitbart and Nickarama.
