Breaking News!! First U.S Ebola Patient Dies.
The first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States has died, the Associated Press reports. Thomas Eric Duncan bowed to death on Wednesday in Dallas after being diagnosed and kept in isolation. Duncan 42 year old, arrived Texas on September 20th from Liberia, West Africa and was immediately hospitalized after an initial visit to the Emergency room when he took ill.
Health officials are still trying to contain the spread of the deadly disease as it is believed that Duncan may have put others in Dallas at risk. There are fears that Ebola could potentially spread in the U.S but measures have been set in place at airports to combat the virus, especially of passengers whose travels are majorly from West African countries where Ebola is centered.
