First US Ebola Patient Fighting for His Life

Thomas E. Duncan, who became ill with Ebola after arriving from West Africa in Dallas two weeks ago, is fighting for his life today after his condition worsened to critical, according to the director of the US Centers for Disease Control.

The Dallas hospital that admitted him did not recognize the deadly disease at first and sent him home, only for him to return two days later by ambulance.
