In a new video, a man in Liberia says he spotted a man who he believed had Ebola at an airport in the capital Monrovia.
A local journalist who asked not to be named for fear of reprisal said the man was identified by the fingerprint.
The man, who is in his late 30s, told the reporter that he noticed a man on a wheelchair, saying, “He’s got an Ebola symptom.”
The man said the suspect was carrying a black backpack and a suitcase.
The video then shows him walking up to the man and handing him the backpack, then walking away.
The journalist asked the man to show the video to the cameraman.
The cameraman declined.
A few days later, the man told the journalist he was a health worker at the airport and asked for his camera to be returned.
The footage shows him carrying the backpack into a waiting car and getting into a red Ford Escort.
The car’s driver says the driver was carrying Ebola medication and he was on his way to the airport.
The news media in Liberia are reporting that the man in the video is a biometric lab technician at the Monroviu National Health and Medical Center, where the man said he was taking care of Ebola patients.
It is unclear whether the man is related to the Liberian national who was diagnosed with Ebola.
The lab technician, who was not identified, has been identified as Thomas Eric Duncan, a doctor who worked at the hospital.
The Liberian man who took the selfie, a young man who has not been identified, said he had been taking care for Ebola patients in Liberia.
“He was wearing a shirt, a suit, shoes, and was carrying his backpack,” the man, speaking in an interview with the journalist, said.
“I didn’t recognize him at first.”
Duncan has been at the United Nations-run facility in Monrova since September, when he arrived from Liberia to treat Ebola patients at the U.N. hospital.
He had been working there since August and had been treating patients for two months, the U,N.
On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he believes Duncan had Ebola and was brought back to the U., not Liberia.
Duncan had been hospitalized in Liberia before arriving in the United States, according to a U.K. news agency.
Duncan, who has tested negative for Ebola, has since returned to Liberia, the agency reported.
