Thomas Eric Duncan, the patient with Ebola, flew on commercial flights to Dallas from Liberia last month. Before leaving Liberia, Duncan had his temperature taken at the airport in Monrovia by a person who had been trained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He did not have a fever. But now, Liberian authorities announced they plan to prosecute him for lying to an airport questionnaire. Some voices in the U.S., immigration experts , claim that officials had made one “mistake” by issuing Duncan a visa last year and a second error by allowing him to enter now the country.Duncan is in serious condition, being treated in an isolation unit at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.
On October 1, health officials in Texas announced that a second person was under observation for possible Ebola virus. This person had close contact with the confirmed case, according to the health officials.
