Dallas Ebola Patient-Thomas Eric Duncan is Dead…


Eric Duncan
Eric Duncan

Thomas Eric Duncan, the 42 year old man who brought Ebola to the United States from Monrovia, Liberia 18 days ago has died this morning in a Dallas hospital.

Officials say Eric’s health took a grave turn for the worse this weekend—he succumbed to the virus at 7.51am at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

In a statement, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital said; ‘It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7.51am. Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola.

‘He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing. We have offered the family our support and condolences at this difficult time.’

Meanwhile the about 50 people Thomas Eric Duncan is suspected to have exposed to the disease in America, including his fiancée Louise Troh and two of her children remain quarantined and under constant monitoring by health officials over fears that they, too, could develop symptoms during a 21-day incubation period.

For now, Duncan’s body which still carries the virus must be disposed of in a way that will not put anyone else at risk of contracting the deadly disease.

  1. So how come they were able to save the two other Americans and not him? I even heard in Spain over 300 people have petitioned for the government to save a common dog with Ebola. Africans we r in trouble oo because if they are killing African American like flies then Africans we r in big trouble cos it looks like they are not prepared to help or save us. I suggest the African government help African scientist with money to come up with a cure for the disease n also African outside Africa contribute to help come up with a solution. Smh

  3. When bn Black or lets say African sucks..
    Lets be real..he was dead when they announced or claimed 3 days ago that his condition was critical..Americans were not gonna waste their time,resources,money and energy to care for an African..others got the disease and were treated well..they survived..since dude was African and CDC was so angry at him for bringing it to the US,they didn’t bother to use that same experiment or whatever it was on him..they reserved it in case an American needed it like the one in Nebraska..smart thinking US/CDC/THR..poor dude..RIP..think about it

    1. People sick in far more advanced stages have been saved…the only difference was that they were more “important” people..in this case it was a political decision not medical …they did not want to create a precedent and send a message to Africans that they can come to US, receive treatment and survive, so he was denied the life savers experimental antiviral drugs and/or blood transfusions

  5. I knew they were going to let him die. In fact, the second American doctor who was brought back here from Liberia was in worst condition than Thomas Duncan but somehow he miraculously survived. Oh wait! He received the magic serum-Zmapp. So, how come Mr. Duncan did not receive the same treatment like the others? Probably because he is not an American citizen? Or does it have anything to do with his race? Anyway, another American journalist (Ashoka Mupko) who contracted Ebola in Liberia was rushed back to America and is currently receiving treatment at Nebraska. I guarantee you he is going to live because he is white. Africans wake up!!

    1. I’m going to disagree with you this time. Ask yourself this question “why didn’t he alert the hospital he was coming from Liberia and suspected he might be carrying Ebola?” Because they would not have allowed him to enter the country I mean after entering and realising he had fever which is the symptoms of Ebola. He could have alerted the doctors who attended him. He told them he was from Liberia but could not tell them he was sick of the disease
      He was first treated in a hospital and discharged but got serious few days after before he was quarantined… It had then gone bad…so that’s how it happened so we shouldn’t blame America. They gain nothing from his death…he has rather created a problem for them even his mum begged him not to go but still went

      1. kweku is 100% right this time, there are lots of hospitals that could have treated him with the experimental drug. The presbytarian didn’t had none to cure him. Why didn’t the medical expertise flew him down to Emory, john hopkins, Nebraska, even the same dallas has this teaching hospital that could order the cure in a jiffy. He’s a black and illegal so what more did we expect? They didn’t push harder on his health. My husband and my brothers wish they had their powers to transfer him to a better facility. U.S.A failed this time around. They claims to be the land of opportunity yet disappointed the entire world today.

          1. Never take them serious, Cnn keeps changing their stories, Fox is also another son of a bi…..tch channel to listen to news. His treatment was very minimal compared to the whites, My coworkers were all disappointed even my unit doctor. He asked why that low class hospital for an ebola patient? These white folks succeeded today. I pray God heals everyone with this ebola so we don’t hear anymore bad news.

        1. and this is how your facts are inaccurate. first of all he isn’t ILLEGAL..he was migrating on a visa…he did not hop onto a plane unannounced or anything of that sort…2 he wasn’t a citizen hence certainly won’t be priviledged to a whole lot as you put it..fly him all over…from his first treatment to discharge to going back again..there was little to be done there…hospitals are not ready for ebola and don’t let the fact that its the USA deceive you.

          1. Ermmm sir have you ever been to the united state before or you just get your information through social media? I am a nurse and works for the ER department at a hospital in dc, according to the nation law, everyone deserves to be treated accordingly regardless of the immigration status, race and gender. There’s a huge discrepancies, this man was neglected for several days before his final treatment. They knew the treatment wouldn’t work at the last minute and strongly wanted him dead. You need to stop typing what you not sure of. He was on a visa alright but still didn’t make him legal enough. Insurance played a major rule here, What happened to their own health care emergency law? Why didn’t the health care teams transferred him to an advanced unit for proper care, yet the whites were given the best treatment when they encountered the disease. Majority of the doctors i work with were very much disappointed on this. I don’t blame you, with a case like this you gotta be a medical literate to understand the terms and conditions. I agree with kweku too, the man to him was considered as illegal immigrant if you care to know. Well spoken kweku.

          2. Oh come of it…You KNOW everything about health care law and insurance don’t u…I have grown and lived here for the past 20 years…yes you have to be treated regardless of immigration status…doesn’t mean if there are not enough resources to treat you means u get treated….and if you travel on a visit visa you are NOT ILLEGAL…

          3. Do you have any proof that he was neglected? Baseless accusations and speculations! If you know insurance played a big role here, then why are you surprised? Here, a patient’s status on the floor is proportional to the insurance coverage: period! Insurance can keep you around for a very long time. If you go to the hospital with no insurance, they will discharge you soon with some antibiotics. Playing race cards is childish, just like your introduction!

          4. Where in the world do you even live? In a village always sitting in front of her big large box tv to watch cnn international has the nerves to comment. Sorry but you don’t have what it takes for me to exchange views with. My introduction might seems childish to you but not as dumb as you are. I know my rights and the good samaritan law i should provide for anyone including the innocent man who just passed on. As the girl above suggested, do you know the meaning of emergency law in the united state? Nop because you don’t live here nor understand the medical terms. Medical negligence is when that good for nothing facility waited till the 5th day to treat this poor man regardless of his situation. Do you even know the depth about this case or you just implying through the comments above. I rest my case, you can’t possibly understand any of the med terms i will use. Next time help joycelyn on her cholera campaign and stop contributing to comments like this.

          5. Whilst I’m ‘helping’ Joycelyn, you should enroll back in school to take courses that will help you to think critically. You are just so UNINTELLIGENT! No wonder you are a nurse. I don’t have what it takes and yet you glorified butt wiper replied! What has knowing your ‘rights’ got to do with the issue at hand. Can you please stop exposing your empty head, by not asking people where they reside? A person’s abode has nothing to do with their knowledge on issues. You seem to be an expert when it comes to lame introductions. You just sit behind your computer and assume that someone doesn’t live “here” based on his/her comment? That kind of assumption belongs in the resume of a dumb arrogant ignorant stupid nurse.
            Wait a minute! You use med terms? To who, the doctors, patients, or their families? lmao, you want me to know that you paid attention in your nursing class huh? Hahahahaha, YOU ARE A DAMN JOKER.

    2. Hi King, trust you are well. How come? Why? endless questions. what i think is happening is that the Americans “cooked” the Ebola virus as they did with the HIV and the so called missionaries that were supposedly infected and treated back in the US, were in my view AGENTS who were sent by the US to spread the virus in Liberia/S-L/Guinea. One reason could be for the precious mineral reserves that these countries possess. another reason could be for the pharmaceutical industries to create wealth with the so called Zmapp drugs. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Mark 8:36.

  7. So the black man dies and the white people did not die when they were all taken to same Africa hospitals? Hmmm we have to start thinking Black people

    1. Wait a minute, which african hospital? “Cos he arrived in US on the 20th of Sept, admitted to the hospital on the 28th and died today. So which africa hospital are you talking about? Its interesting that these medications worked on the white folks but not on this man.

      1. He was admitted at the hospital for over a week. And each day we keep on hearing how his condition is getting worse by the day, but he wasn’t getting treated at all. It was only yesterday that, they claim they started treating him when they already knew he has no chance of survival.

  9. Somehow I knew this man won’t survive it, Duncan ‘s presence became a political issues he became the enermy they would do anything to eliminate him it was definitely a collective decision to let him die.

  11. It is so easy to pass judgement when you do not know the facts. 1. People in the United States have routine vaccinations, immunizations and what have you. When was the last time anyone in Africa went to the hospital unless sick. 2. Yes, insurance can be a factor here as well..the fact that he received treatment to some extent may or may not disclose this fact…privacy laws here will not allow that to be disclosed anyway..3. Zmapp was the one that is proven effective unfortunately for him, the drug is finished. 4. Media can SPIN anything to generate controversy…DO not believe everything you hear.

    1. Immunization and vaccination is not the culprit here. Haven’t you heard of Ebola survivors in Nigeria and Liberia before? How did they survived Ebola without any Immunization and vaccination and Eric Duncan didn’t? You can spin, turn and twist it however you want, but, some of us know the reason why he died. And stop talking about privacy laws. We all know the kind of medical care and treatment the other Ebola survivors received. By the way, the only thing I seem to agree with you on is the fact that, he has no insurance to cover for all the expenses. But wait, how come other illegal immigrants receive better medical care than some tax payers and Eric Duncan didn’t get the same privilege even though he came with a visa? Do I think insurance played any role in this matter. Nada!!

      1. why didnt he stay in Liberia then…fact is there is a general lack of understanding of the disease…and that is why there’s so much confusion about it..there has been high mortality as well in West Africa …someone dropped the ball yes in his initial assessment but to cast sole blame and making it a racial issue is infantile

    2. The drug was finished, but am sure they would have ordered for more or transport him to a different location where the drug was available if duncan were to be a white guy. Do you think if they had transported him, those facility would have refused his treatment? To the nation and every medical freak, presbytarian healthcare team didn’t give their best shot. I agree mostly with kweku, juicenet, boom and miss leila. He was a sample test to them while the white folks live meant a lot to them.

  13. Africans in abroad work tirelessly yet we still seen as the underdog,I still cannot understand why Africans till this day are treated as minor even in death, Thomas was not given zmap the drug used to treat the other victims because he was told it was finished, the last two was used by the other victims(which we all know is a lie,are they trying to say they produced just two drugs in a big country like America,) instead they gave Thomas a drug which was never tested hence it was not effective and died, they watched him Suffer because they saw him as the enermy from Africa who brought ebola into their beautiful country because he is African, I believe they could have given him the proper treatment to save his life, because they were able detected the disease in him in the early stage and perhaps if they had given him the proper treatment he would have lived,very sad ending

  15. May he rip, why that hospital though? His case needed a real teaching hospital with fully equipped. My husband has never been wrong, the first thing he said was this man will die in this poor facility and become a world history and it came to pass. I feel so broken, the whites were all taken to good teaching hospitals like Emory, Nebraska medical center while thomas was in a regular intensive unit. Was it because he was an illegal immigrant? WTF happened to the EMTALA law IN THE COUNTRY? Is quiet annoying on how these so called Americans are reacting, when their own citizen entered Nigeria with the virus. They never mentioned it and now that is in the country every ignorant bastard keep say stop all the flights from West Africa. How ironic!!!

  17. Social media is inundated with comments blaming the US for not giving Eric Duncan the same level of urgency it gave its citizens in treating the Ebola virus. Wait a minute! Am I the only person who does not see any conspiracy here? Doctors here are trained to save lives, all lives irrespective of color or race. The Texas hospital erred by releasing Duncan thinking his prognosis was a common fever. If Duncan had been properly diagnosed on his first visit, his chances of recovery would have improved. For four days he did not receive any supportive treatment for a ravaging disease like Ebola. A lot had gone wrong by the time he was re-admitted.

    Lets calm down.

    1. His case needed a fully equipped teaching medical facility. Those who survived had the best treatment at the final hour in the best hopsitals. Trust me racism still exist in this country. The medical team failed to fulfilled the EMTALA care because he was black and illegal man. They claims he weren’t responsive enough to receive the experimental medication. How is that possible? My hubby and colleague went on a bet and it finally happened. Am so disappointed though.

      1. On a second thought, I believe they intentionally withheld the experimental medicine as a deterrence to others that may try to follow suit and come to America for a better medical care. Another reason is that, they thought he knew he had the virus and didn’t give a damn about anyone, and came here to spread it. He is perceived as an enemy. It is disgusting that a lot of white people are happy that he died. So sad!!

        1. Kweku do u by chance know’s my hubby? You two think alike. Omg he said he would be used as a real scapegoat on this ebola so others will not fly to America for treatment. Trust me i believe him too, he know’s everything that goes on in the hospitals but due to stupid HIPPA rules certain stuffs are always left unsaid. He felled into their trap. Many ignorant americans keeps labeling him as a terrorist who intentionally flew down to spread. I feel broken, may his innocent soul RIP this minute.

          1. Hahahaha…. No, I don’t know him, great minds think alike. Your husband is a smart man.

      2. Just did a little research and came across this:Farrakhan’s Latest: The CIA Created Ebola (and AIDS) to Kill Off Black People

        Professional bigot and hater Louis Farrakhan has crawled out from under his rock once again to spew another hatred-filled tome. His latest revelation is a CIA weapon “that can be put in a room where there are Black and White people, and it will kill only the Black and spare the White, because it is a genotype weapon that is designed for your genes, for your race, for your kind.”

        His latest rant is called “Justifiable Homicide, Black Youth In Peril,” and it’s a whopper. He talks about the U.S. government’s desire for world depopulation:

        In a national security memo dated April 24, 1974 titled, “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for the United States Security and Overseas Interest,” Henry Kissinger, the Secretary of State under George Herbert Walker Bush, wrote: “Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the Third World.” Depopulation—to depopulate something means: “To ravage, to ruin, to reduce the population of, especially by violence, disease, etc.” Mr. Kissinger continued, “The United States economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries”—this means they are going to destroy the population of mainly Third World countries.

        1. Ignore that terrorist…he’s one person who I wish ebola on…ignorant bigots who keep the state of tension hightened

  19. Some comments doesn’t make sense, a man was simply rejected for 5days and yet people don’t smell a sign of racial profiling in these. Simple and short if you don’t reside in the United state please don’t contribute to our inner circle. Just move on to the next article period. Thomas was a strong victim of racial medical negligence which is clearly written on the wall. If any of you fools out here disagree on this, why didn’t he given the drug immediately? According to the case, It was a far longer wait than four other Ebola patients treated in the United States. Those patients two each at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital and the University of Nebraska Medical Center got experimental medicine immediately. They’re all U.S. citizens; Duncan was a Liberian. Some keep blaming him for not confessing, what was there for him to confess? Did he knew the ebola patient who died last week was a victim? Was he a fool enough to lie about this contagious disease. He had all the positive symptoms of ebola and the nurse in question didn’t make any note. You all needs to enroll in some elementary school for proper understanding. In a case like this, they have high chance of winning in court. If a big hospital is out of drugs what more would they have done to sustain a patient? If you reside in Ghana let cnn become your enemy because they are a mini league of racial fox news. Rest my case let the insults flows.

    1. Those of you who sit behind your laptops, computers, phones and insult other people on here are so uncouth. This is a discussion platform and matured decent people do not throw insults at your fellow colleagues, meanwhile your tenses and grammar are so bad? and for your information, I believe he was sidelined too but there are better ways to say it or put it but not insult and think that people who live in ghana or africa are villagers. some are far better off than those of you doing live-in in the states. and fyi people travel all over the world for holidays/vacation to enjoy plus live in better places than you live or have experience but come back home to ghana so you guys should not under estimate people and think you are on top of the world. most of ghanaians is america are even villagers than those in africa.

      1. Gosh your grammar is bad too. I hate people who comes in here to judge others by their grammar. Please fix yours before you raise such statement. Are we in some english class? if we are then will automatically grade you as F.

    2. As much as i agree with you on these at the same time disagree. First of all, people in Ghana has it all like some of us. My both parents lives in Ghana and they are both Advanced medical expertise. You meant they can’t contribute due to lack of experience which is absolutely wrong on your part. My father is a well known surgeon and has what it takes to know every medical jargon across the world. He was the first to call me on this case on Wednesday. Our country is filled with intelligent individuals who can debate as well. Next time you can simply state something without all these unnecessary talks. thank you
