Public health authorities are working to track down anyone who may have come into close contact with a man who was confirmed Tuesday to be the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S.
Little is known about the patient, including his name, age, and nationality. Officials say he lived and worked in Liberia, where he likely caught the disease from one of the thousands infected in that country, but showed no symptoms when he flew back to the U.S. Sept. 19. As a result, no one who traveled with him on that flight is at risk of Ebola.
It is not clear why he traveled to Dallas, where he has been in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since Sunday. Federal officials told the Dallas Morning News he was visiting family members, while city officials told the paper that he had made a permanent move.
