There was a massive local response. Details below the fold.
From CBS DFW:
According to a statement from the City of Frisco, the patient claims to have had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, referred to as Dallas ‘patient zero.’More at the above link.
The Frisco patient has been identified as a Dallas County deputy, who was not one of the 48 people being monitored by federal, state and local health officials because he never had direct contact with the patient.
The call came in shortly after noon from Care Now, 301 W. Main Street, where the patient was “exhibiting signs and symptoms of Ebola.”
First responders are also examining clinical staff and other patients at the Care Now facility. It is unknown how many other people may have been exposed to the patient.
UPDATE: Sources are saying that this is the deputy who delivered the quarantine order.
UPDATE @ 3:56 PM, EDT, October 9: The deputy sheriff has tested negative! Thank God!
