The first to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, Thomas Eric Duncan initially sought treatment at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on the night of Sept. 25 after returning from Liberia. Shockingly, Duncan was sent home with antibiotics despite voicing that he had just been to Liberia, where an outbreak of Ebola has been occurring since March, 2014. By Sunday, he needed an ambulance to return to the same hospital after vomiting on the ground outside the apartment complex.
“His whole family was screaming. He got outside and he was throwing up all over the place,” resident Mesud Osmanovic, 21, said on Wednesday, describing the chaotic scene before Thomas Eric Duncan was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday.
