Surgery-Team-DoctorsDozens of staff members from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas came into direct contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian national who became the first Ebola victim to die in the U.S. The Associated Press (AP) says roughly 70 healthcare workers from the hospital were involved in the care of Duncan, including nurse Nina Pham, who has now been confirmed as the first case of Ebola being contracted in the U.S. Medical records provided by Duncan’s family to the AP reveal that a very large medical team helped treat the victim before he died, which means authorities now have a lot more work to do in tracking potential cases still in incubation. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that Pham’s confirmed infection demonstrates a need to broaden the pool of people to be monitored.
