Officials Find Find Homeless Man Who's Possible Ebola Contact

Sunday, 05 Oct 2014 12:49 PM

Authorities say they've located a homeless man who needs to be monitored because he may have had contact with the lone Ebola patient in the United States.

 

Dallas city spokeswoman Sana Syed said the man was located Sunday, a few hours after officials first said he was missing.

The person is not considered to be one of the 10 people who definitely had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, who is in critical condition at a Dallas hospital.

Authorities said Sunday that the man is part of a larger group of 38 people who may have been around Duncan when he was showing symptoms of the disease.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins previously called the man a "low-risk individual."
