Fox News is reporting that a Texas Health care worker involved with the care of Thomas Duncan, has tested positive for Ebola. The news was released early this morning. As governments, health experts and scientists around the world try to ensure their own precautions are up to the task, all eyes are once again on Texas.
From the BBC:
“We knew a second case could be a reality, and we’ve been preparing for this possibility,” said Dr David Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Mr Duncan, who caught the virus in his native Liberia, died at a Dallas hospital on Wednesday.
The health worker has not been named.
Mr Duncan tested positive in Dallas on 30 September, 10 days after arriving on a flight from Monrovia via Brussels.
He became ill a few days after arriving in the US, but after going to hospital and telling medical staff he had been in Liberia, he was sent home with antibiotics.
He was later put into an isolation unit at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas but died despite being given an experimental drug.
