Texas Ebola Patient Dies



Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas announced that Thomas Eric Duncan died Wednesday morning as the result of his infection with the Ebola virus, according to the Washington Post. The experimental treatment using the oral anti-viral drug brincidofovir obviously did not work, but that may have been because it was administered after he had fallen critically ill. We should know by next week if any of the folks with whom he came in contact before being diagnosed will fall ill from the disease.
