US Ebola Patient Eric Duncan Thomas Dies in Dallas Hospital



The United State's index case of the Ebola virus, Duncan Thomas, has died in an hospital in Dallas, BBC reports.


The first person to be diagnosed with Ebola within the US has died, Texas hospital officials have said.

Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, who caught the virus in his native Liberia, was being treated with an experimental drug in isolation in a Dallas hospital.

"Our thoughts today are with his family," said US President Barack Obama, who said his death showed "we don't have a lot of margin for error. If we don't follow protocols and procedures that are put in place, then we're putting folks in our communities at risk".
