There, Tom Frieden, M.D., Director of the Center for Disease Control, said that the patient did not show any symptoms when leaving from Liberia on Sept. 19 or entering the U.S. Sept. 20. The patient, an unidentified man, sought treatment Sept. 26 and was admitted to a hospital Sept. 28.

During his first visit to the hospital, he complained of illness but was released before returning Sept. 28 as his condition worsened.  A hospital official said it wasn’t until then that they discovered he was in West Africa.
