Five Kids Linked to U.S. Ebola Patient Held in Isolation

The Texas Ebola patient who was misdiagnosed Friday came in contact with five children over the weekend — who are now being isolated at their homes amid escalating fears of an outbreak.

Thomas Eric Duncan has been identified by his sister as the first confirmed case of the deadly disease on US soil — and she says her brother warned health care workers at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on Friday that he had been visiting the US from Liberia, the Associated Press reports.

Duncan — a Monrovia resident who had a layover in Belgium on his way to visit family in Texas — may have also spread the disease to at least one other person he met with before being hospitalized, health officials said Wednesday.
