First U.S. Ebola patient dies Wednesday

The first American Ebola patient died Wednesday.  Thomas Eric Duncan was the first person to have been diagnosed with Ebola on U.S. soil.

Duncan was pronounced dead at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas just before 8 a.m. local time Wednesday according to ABC.  Duncan recently traveled to Dallas from Liberia, where it is assumed he contracted the disease.  He was diagnosed shortly after arriving in the United States, and has been in isolation since.


ABC reports that hospital employees who have had contact with the victim are being monitored for Ebola, but none are showing symptoms.

Charles H. Calisher, a Colorado State University professor, wrote a book on the deadly disease called “The Impenetrable Veil – from Yellow Fever to Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever to SARS.”  Calisher is a member of the Center for Infection and Immunity and a professor for the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at CSU.

He will be speaking about his book Tuesday in the Morgan Library Event Hall from 4:15 – 5:15 p.m.
