by flukky01 « on: October 15, 2014, 01:00:53 PM »




A second health care worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has tested positive for Ebola, the Texas Department of State Health Services announced early Wednesday.

The unidentified health care worker treated Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who tested positive for the disease on Sept. 30. Duncan was the first person to have been diagnosed with the virus in the U.S. He died on Oct. 8.

After reporting a fever on Tuesday, the health care worker was put into isolation. Authorities are now searching for anyone who may have been in contact with the worker.

Nina Pham, the first nurse diagnosed with Ebola after treating Duncan, is also in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is still not clear how she became infected.
In total, about 70 hospital staff members were involved in Duncan's care.
