Sgt. John Chafee chose not to say much about the Cunningham case, simply telling CBS News that the Atlanta Police Department got its information "directly from the CDC", redirecting other inquiries about the case to the agency's media release.

"The goal of that meeting was to explain a promotion he did not receive to branch manager", he said.

"We want him to return to his loved ones and his work - doing what he does best as a CDC disease detective - protecting people's health".
