Dallas Ebola Patient Thomas Eric Duncan Has Died

Thomas Duncan, the man who had been diagnosed with the first case of Ebola in the United States, has died today at the age of 42, according to NBC News.

Duncan had reportedly started to develop symptoms after coming in contact with a young woman stricken with Ebola whom he had helped get to the hospital. When he got to the United States, he went to a Dallas hospital and was accidentally released for three days.

Once Duncan was back, he was quarantined in the hospital and was listed as being in critical condition last Saturday.
