Duncan, Liberian diagnosed with Ebola in the US, has died
BREAKING – Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, the Liberian diagnosed with Ebola in the US, has died, according to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
The hospital said:”It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7:51 a.m.”
“Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola. He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing.”
Duncan was the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. And it was his first trip to America.
XCLUSIVE Magazine reported on 2 October 2014 that Liberian authorities planned to prosecute Duncan whenever he returned to Liberia for lying to the airport authorities.
The chairman of the board of directors of the Liberia Airport Authority, Binyah Kesselly, had told reporters then that the 42-year-old Liberian citizen had answered “no” to the question on the Airport health questionnaire.
