A Dallas County Sheriff’s deputy has reportedly been rushed to the hospital by ambulance with signs of the deadly Ebola disease. The deputy reportedly visited the apartment of first patient, Thomas Duncan, who died today from the illness.
A press conference has been scheduled in Dallas this afternoon to update the public on the shocking details of the developing story.
According to a statement from the City of Frisco, the patient claims to have had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, referred to as Dallas ‘patient zero.’
The Frisco patient has been identified as a Dallas County deputy Michael Monnig, who was not one of the 48 people being monitored by federal, state and local health officials because he never had direct contact with the patient. Monnig did enter the apartment where Duncan stayed after Duncan had been admitted to the hospital.
According to CBS 11’s Andrea Lucia, Monnig’s children said he woke up this morning feeling sore and a little nauseated. He went to clinic as a precaution. Other sources say Monnig was complaining of “stomach issues.”
The call came in shortly after noon from Care Now, 301 W. Main Street, where the patient was “exhibiting signs and symptoms of Ebola.”
Texas Health Presbyterian confirmed the patient’s arrival in a statement, which reads in part, “Right now, there are more questions than answers about this case. Our professional staff of nurses and doctors is prepared to examine the patient, discuss any findings with appropriate agencies and officials. We are on alert with precautions and systems in place, according to CBS.”
