– TX Health Officials Now Admit 100 Residents May Have Been Exposed to Ebola
Turns out the Ebola patient zero scenario is not at all likely to be an isolated event as the White House and CDC are trying to claim. Texas health officials are not admitting what many of us believed all along… many, MANY more were exposed to Ebola in the days Thomas Duncan roamed the Dallas area while infected. In fact, a new report shows that up to 100 may now be at risk of having Ebola.
Health officials in Texas said Thursday that they had reached out to as many as 100 people who may have had contact — either directly or indirectly — with a Liberian man sick with the Ebola virus while he was contagious.
Of those people, only a handful have been isolated, including family members and the medical technicians who rushed the patient, Thomas E. Duncan, to the hospital on Sunday. Most on the list are there simply because they had contact with people who had had contact with Mr. Duncan.
