100 People In Texas Believed To Have Had Contact With Ebola Patient

Four members of 42-year-old Thomas Eric Duncan’s family have been legally ordered to stay home in Dallas, Texas as a precaution even though they are not showing symptoms.

Up to 100 people in Texas are believed to have had contact with Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan. 

His partner, Louise, told CNN that she has been legally ordered to stay inside her Dallas apartment with her 13-year-old child and two nephews, who are both in their twenties, as they came in direct contact with the patient while he was contagious.

None of the four people quarantined are showing Ebola symptoms but Louise, who works as a home help, has been taking the group’s temperature every hour. Some parents have temporarily removed their children from four affected Dallas schools after learning that five students may have come into contact with Mr Duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S.
