(7ONLINE) — CDC officials have removed passengers from a plane that landed in Newark Saturday afternoon following a possible Ebola scare.
United flight 998 from Brussels landed at Newark Airport and has been met by Centers for Disease Control officials based in Newark after passengers on board, believed to be from Liberia, exhibited possible signs of Ebola.
An official, who had been briefed on the situation, said the passenger was "vomiting on flight but did not display most of the other symptoms."

"He's now being treated with protocols as if he has it but no clear indication at this point that he does," the official said.
