Thomas Duncan Ebola in America.Ebola is proving to be easily contractable than thought.A health worker who helped in the treatment of Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan, who died on Wednesday October 8th, at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, Dallas, has contracted the disease.
Dallas state health officials released a statement today revealing the first case of Ebola transmission in the US

The worker has been isolated since Friday night October 10th but his/her identity has not disclosed.
If after what we all know about Ebola and all the examples we have seen on how contagious it can be,this still happens in a place like the US,THEN THERE SHOULD BE CAUSE FOR PANIC.
It makes it more remarkable how Nigeria has managed to control Ebola disease.I hope this infected workeer in the USA is the last we hear of.Ebola has brought on too much sadness and destruction of families.
