After Duncan had went to the hospital and explained his symptoms as well as the fact that he had just left Liberia — A country battling Ebola — he was reportedly released again back into society with nothing more than a prescription for antibiotics. According to Texas Presbyterian Hospital, this was not made clear to the medical professionals who originally diagnosed Duncan.

Several days later as his symptoms increased and his health declined, Duncan was re-admitted to the Hospital where he was then diagnosed with Ebola.

How did Duncan get Ebola?

While Duncan was in Liberia — he reportedly assisted in helping move a pregnant woman who was dying of Ebola. The woman later died from the sickness, It wasn’t long after this that Duncan boarded a flight to the Belgian capital, and from there her boarded a flight to America.

According to sources, Duncan came in contact with nearly 12-18 people who the CDC is now attempting to track down in order to test the for Ebola. Part of that number includes 5 students who attend 4 different schools in the area, these students are reportedly the children of Duncan’s girlfriend living in America.

The mother and her 5 children have been legally ordered to stay home from for 21 days — long enough for medical officials to determine if they have been exposed to the Ebola virus. The Schools have also been notified as well as the parents of all children who attend.

Although the superintendent of the school-district assured parents that they had nothing to worry about considering that the Ebola virus supposedly cannot be spread from someone not displaying symptoms — nevertheless school attendance is said to have dropped to nearly 85%.

The CDC continues its attempt to track down everyone who Duncan may have come in contact to, no new Ebola patients have emerged as of date.
