Texas Officials Clear 43 People After Ebola Monitoring
« on: October 21, 2014, 08:23:49 AM »
Breathing a sigh of relief, Texas officials said Monday that 43 people who had contact with a man who died of Ebola, Thomas Eric Duncan, were cleared of twice-daily monitoring, and they urged residents to accept those people back into the community.
At a news conference, Judge Clay Jenkins, Dallas County?s top elected official, said that the 43 were part of an initial 48 people who were being monitored because they had contact with Mr. Duncan before he was admitted to the hospital on Sept. 28. The group included Mr. Duncan?s fianc?e, Louise Troh, who nursed him in their cramped apartment, along with her 13-year-old son, Timothy, and the two young men who shared the apartment with her and Mr. Duncan.

The rest of the initial group, Mr. Jenkins said, would be taken off the monitoring list later Monday or soon after.

About 120 more people continue to be monitored for symptoms.

?Epidemiologists have worked around the clock to call and visit people who may have had any exposure, to make sure they were asymptotic and doing well,? Dr. David Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, said in a statement. ?I?m happy we can tell people they are free and clear of monitoring. It provides a measure of relief and reassurance.?
