A Dallas County sheriff’s deputy in Frisco who said he was feeling ill and who had been in the apartment of Thomas Eric Duncan, the man who died Wednesday of Ebola, has been hospitalized.

NBC 5 has confirmed the man is Sr. Sgt. Michael Monnig with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office.

Sgt. Chris Dyer with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Association said the symptoms exhibited were not Ebola-like, but because Monnig  was feeling ill and had been at the apartment, he was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian out of an abundance of caution.

At 12:32 p.m., Frisco dispatch received a call from CareNow in the 300 block of Main Street, “regarding a patient exhibiting signs and symptoms of Ebola,” according to a news release from  the City of Frisco.

“This patient had reported that they initially had been in the apartment of the initial Ebola patient in Dallas and had some contact with family members,” Frisco Fire Chief Mark Piland said Wednesday. “I’d like to emphasize that at this time our information is that they had not had contact with the patient, but family members, and they had also been inside the apartment.”

Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who became the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, died Wednesday morning at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

  1. Hope and change! America has been fundamentally transformed
    into a third world dictatorship complete with a dictator who can kill or imprison anyone he wants and deadly tropical diseases spreading unchecked in the civilian population. Maybe we should declare sharia law and behead all preppers with ebola.

  2. And now, this morning, I hear that a Texas healthcare worker who tended to Duncan tested positive for Ebola.

  3. Why was he taken to Texas Health Presbyterian? Has Texas Health remedied the massive failures that they tried to blame on RNs and others with patient contact?
