Dallas Ebola Patient Goes Tits Up

This isn't especially encouraging news.


Thomas Eric Duncan, first Ebola patient diagnosed in U.S., dies 

 


Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States, died Wednesday more than a week after he was hospitalized in Dallas, officials announced.
Duncan, 42, had become a human face of Ebola for most Americans who were unaware of the disease that has ravaged parts of West Africa and killed more than 3,400 people there.
“It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7:51 a.m.,” Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said in a statement.
The case prompted fear in Dallas and touched off an ambitious public health response at home and abroad to deal with Ebola.
Duncan left Liberia on Sept. 19 to visit Louise Troh, with whom he was reconciling and planned to marry in Dallas. They were planning to live as a family with their son.
“His suffering is over," Troh said in a statement. "My family is in deep sadness and grief, but we leave him in the hands of God. Our deepest sympathies go out to his father and family in Liberia and here in America.”
“I trust a thorough examination will take place regarding all aspects of his care,” she said. “I am now dealing with the sorrow and anger that his son was not able to see him before he died. This will take some time, but in the end, I believe in a merciful God.”
Duncan told his fiancee the day he was diagnosed last week that he regretted exposing her to the deadly virus and had he known he was carrying Ebola, he would have “preferred to stay in Liberia and died than bring this to you,” Saymendy Lloyd, a close friend of Troh said on Wednesday.

“He apologized to Louise the day they told him what he had,” Lloyd said. “He told her, ‘I’m so sorry all of this is happening. . . . I would not put the love of my life in danger.’”

  1. Well, no charges for the Dallas DA to file. Please tell me they are cremating him.

  2. “I trust a thorough examination will take place regarding all aspects of his care,” This statement burns me to the core, like who the fuck does she think will pay for his care that has been estimated at approximately $1000.00 a fucking hour, and as for his remains, here is an idea. Take his worthless ass carcass and drop it right on top of the ISIS group right smack dab in the middle of the so called Middle-East. Two birds, one stone.

  4. I really don't care he died. No reason to be sad or miss him. He lied in order to leave Liberia and infect people here. He should not of been allowed in the U.S. We should Nuke Liberia.

    Because that's what Jesse Jackson told her to say. Maybe he picked up a dose of it.
