First American Ebola Patient Dies

Last week, Ebola, a virus that started in Africa, was brought to the U.S. by a man named Thomas Duncan. He lived in Dallas, Texas. Just 9 days after getting diagnosed, he died in the hospital. The virus may have spread to other people that he came into contact with before he was diagnosed including children and doctors. This has scared the rest of the nation and has brought this issue to be one of the nation's top priorities. Many other people around the world are reporting that they have it, including a man in Spain that worked with patients in Africa. This disease could spread to more people and on and on and could end up being very serious and dangerous.
