The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first patient to accidentally carry Ebola to the United States has been diagnosed at a hospital in Dallas.
Four other people with Ebola — all medical volunteers working in West Africa — have been evacuated to the U.S. for treatment but this is the first case in a traveler. The patient’s at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. The CDC said it would release more details later Tuesday.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said in a statement late Monday that it had admitted a patient into strict isolation “based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.” It did not release further details, citing patient confidentiality.
