We have been reporting on Ebola for some time now and the considerations of an outbreak in the United States. Today, Ebola on American soil is a reality. The Centers for Disease Control have confirmed that one person in a Dallas, Texas hospital has been diagnosed with the first case of Ebola in the US.
Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Texas Department of State Health Services, Presbyterian Hospital and Dallas County Health and Human Services all participated in an afternoon press conference. CDC Director Thomas Frieden related the information that the individual who tested positive had traveled to Liberia. The person left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20 with no virus symptoms. Frieden said it was four or five days later that the patient, who is believed to be male, began developing symptoms and was ultimately admitted to Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on Sunday, September 28.
