Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola within the US has died.
 


Thomas Eric Duncan, who caught the virus in his native Liberia, was being kept in isolation in a Dallas hospital and receiving experimental drugs. According to BBC,  a statement released by Texas hospital officials, reads:

    "It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7:51 am."



The news came shortly after US Secretary of State John Kerry urged all nations to boost their response to combat the virus.

"More countries can and must step up," he said in a joint press conference with his British counterpart Philip Hammond.

As long as there no love among black people, we should not expect other races to love us.

Why did he die?

The other Ebola patients brought to the United States for treatment are still alive. Three have been released from the hospital and one is reportedly in stable condition at The Nebraska Medical Center. So what's different about Duncan?

As Lakey said, Ebola attacks the body in many ways. Experts estimate the current outbreak in West Africa has around a 71% fatality rate. Supportive therapy can help, but there are no proven cures for the disease.

Duncan did not start receiving treatment until several days after he started experiencing symptoms, which may have contributed to his rapid decline.

What will happen to his body?

An Ebola patient's body is still highly infectious. Any contact with the bodily fluids could result in transmission of the virus. "Only personnel trained in handling infected human remains, and wearing PPE (personal protective equipment), should touch, or move, any Ebola-infected remains," CDC guidelines state. "Autopsies on patients who die of Ebola should be avoided."

The CDC recommends Ebola patient's bodies be cremated, placed in an airtight casket, or buried in a leak-proof bag.
