US Ebola patient dies

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

The first person to be diagnosed with the Ebola virus in the U.S., died Wednesday.

Thomas Eric Duncan was diagnosed with Ebola on Sept. 28, seven days after he arrived in Texas from Liberia.

At a press conference in Atlanta last week, CDC Director Thomas Frieden said Duncan had come from Liberia to visit family in Texas.

The state’s health officials last week ordered four close family members of Duncan to stay home and not have any visitors to prevent the potential spread of disease.

They say they believed he had contact with approximately 100 people, including dozen of school children.

According to The Associated Press, health officials have identified 10 people, including seven health workers, who had direct contact with Duncan while he was contagious.

Former Ebola Patient Released From Second Hospitalization

Former Ebola patient Dr. Rick Sacra has been released from his second hospitalization since returning to the United States from Liberia, according to UMass Memorial Medical Center, where he was diagnosed with and treated for an upper respiratory infection over the weekend.

UMass Memorial officials said they did not believe that Sacra had relapsed, but isolated him and tested him again for the deadline virus. They confirmed Sunday night that his tests came back negative.
