Texas Ebola Symptom Patient Is Sheriff’s Deputy, Had Responded To Duncan Apartment

HOUSTON, Texas — A Dallas County Sheriff’s Deputy walked into a CareNow clinic in Frisco, Texas on Wednesday afternoon reportedly exhibiting symptoms of Ebola. The officer was one of the responding officers to the apartment of Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died from Ebola earlier today, according to Mark Piland, the Frisco Fire Department Chief.

Piland spoke to a crowd at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon. He said the sheriff’s deputy was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas soon after arriving at CareNow.

Duncan flew to the U.S. from Liberia just days before being diagnosed with Ebola. His diagnosis has raised concerns about flights entering the country from West Africa, which remains heavily afflicted by the deadly virus.
