Ebola patient in Dallas has died

Thomas Eric Duncan, the first diagnosed Ebola patient in the U.S., died this morning.

The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, Texas, shared in a press release this morning that Duncan succumbed to the virus at 7:51 a.m., saying he fought courageously to overcome the malady.

Duncan’s arrival in Texas with the illness has sparked a fervor of preparation for an onslaught of the virus. The CEO for the Texas A&M Health Science Center, Brett Giroir, has been selected to head the Texas Task Force on Infectious Disease and Preparedness and Response.
