Thomas Eric Duncan is the first confirmed Ebola victim in the US. Duncan arrived in the US from Liberia on the 20th of September. The hospital sent him home when he said he felt sick on the 26th. Two days later he was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with Ebola. Between those two days, he was contagious. A team of Federal Ebola experts arrived in Dallas, Texas to help control the situation. The Dallas County Health Department says they’re already closely monitoring a second suspected patient. Over 3,000 people have died from Ebola in West Africa. How well will the US respond to the global epidemic on its home turf?
