(The Washington Post) -- Four passengers who flew into Dulles International Airport recently were taken to a local hospital after enhanced airport screening alarmed the Centers for Disease Control, the Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday.
The agency and the CDC provided no details on the hospital visits or whether the passengers were admitted to the hospital. Spokespeople for the two Northern Virginia hospitals closest to the airport said they did not receive the passengers.
“We have no patients,” said Reston Hospital Center nursing supervisor Kim Wilfred.
“I’m not aware of anything like that, and I would be aware,” said Tony Raker at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
The CDC and DHS could not explain the discrepancy.
