Dallas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan has died, according to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Duncan was 42 years old.
He flew to the US to stay with family members just days after he helped care for a friend who was stricken with Ebola in Liberia, The New York Times reports.
Duncan then started developing symptoms of the disease once he arrived in the US. He went to a Dallas emergency room and told a nurse that he had recently been in West Africa — a region that has been ravaged by an unprecedented Ebola
epidemic — but that information was not “fully communicated” to the rest of his medical team. Duncan was diagnosed with a minor infection and sent away from the hospital.
He returned days later via ambulance, when his symptoms had worsened considerably. Duncan is the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the US.
The hospital treating Duncan released this statement:
