U.S. Ebola patient identified

1 Oct, 2014

The first person to develop Ebola symptoms in the U.S. is identified as Thomas Edward Duncan. His sister, Mai Wureh, says he was treated with antibiotics but then sent home from Texas Health Presbyterian despite telling a nurse that he was visiting from Liberia. CDC Center for Global Health director Dr. Tom Kenyon:

There were no signs of any disease when the gentleman boarded the flight. This was not a failure of the screening process at the airport.
