Duncan, the first man in the US diagnosed with the disease in the United States passed away on October 8th after the disease tragically consumed him. Nina Pham, a Vietnamese nurse from Fort Worth, Texas is the first nurse to have been diagnosed as infected with Ebola by the patient and is current quarantined at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. A second nurse, Amber Joy Vinson who also treated Duncan has been diagnosed with the disease after feeling ‘funny’ on her trip in Ohio. She was allowed on a flight from Ohio to Texas after she started feeling symptoms. Vinson has been quarantined as well at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
