Passenger sneezed and yelled 'I have Ebola!' as a joke

Emergency measures: Security has been stepped up on American airlines after Thomas Eric Duncan brought Ebola to Dallas, Texas, from Liberia. He has since died and 10 people in touch with him are being monitored

The American passenger, who does not have Ebola, was detained by four officers and taken to the airport's medical centre in Punta Cana as he declared: 'I ain't from Africa.' The remaining 255 people were forced to stay on board for two hours until he was cleared, despite airline staff insisting they believed it was a poor-taste joke.
