EbolaThomas Eric Duncan

Presents at hospital

25 Sep, 2014

Duncan presents at Texas Health Presbyterian after 10 p.m. local time. He undergoes basic blood tests but isn’t screened for Ebola, and is given antibiotics and a pain killer. Dr. Edward Goodman:

His condition did not warrant admission. He also was not exhibiting symptoms specific to Ebola.

Although Duncan informs a nurse that he has traveled from Liberia. Staff say this is not ‘fully communicated’ to the hospital’s medical team.
