Following Ebola patient’s travels through the U.S.

(CNN) - We now know the flight path of a man diagnosed with Ebola who boarded three different planes before eventually arriving in Dallas.

Thomas Eric Duncan's flight began in Monrovia, Liberia. From there, he flew to Brussels, Belgium. Next came a layover at Dulles airport, just outside Washington, DC. Finally, he boarded the plane that took him to his final destination: Dallas, Texas.

We've been told Duncan was not showing Ebola symptoms when he traveled, which means the virus was not contagious at that time. But is it enough to reassure passengers who were on board that petri dish in the sky *with* Duncan, or who flew on the same plane after him?

CNN's Rene Marsh reports.
