(CNN) — Several Ebola patients treated in the United States have survived, but the first person ever diagnosed with the deadly virus on American soil didn’t.

Thomas Eric Duncan died Wednesday at a Texas hospital, 10 days after he was admitted.

“Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola. He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing,” hospital spokesman Wendell Watson said in a statement.

Duncan’s family is devastated, their pastor told reporters. And the woman he had planned to marry is haunted by “what ifs” about his care.
