Thompson: Associate of Dallas Ebola patient under close monitoring

DALLAS — Due to close contact with a patient diagnosed with the Ebola virus, a second person is under the close monitoring of health officials as a possible second patient, said the director of Dallas County's health department Wednesday morning in an interview with WFAA.

Zachary Thompson, the director of Dallas County Health and Human Services, says all those who've been in close contact with the diagnosed patient are being monitored as a precaution. However, Thompson pointed to one person in particular as a potential second case.

"Let me be real frank to the Dallas County residents, the fact that we have one confirmed case, there may be another case that is a close associate with this particular patient," he said in a Wednesday interview with WFAA. "... So this is real. There should be a concern, but it's contained to the specific family members and close friends at this moment."

The director continued to assure residents that the public isn't at risk as health officials have the virus contained.

Contained? You mean they also know exactly where every single one of the family members and close friends were every second of the 8 days he'd been in the US with it?  

This "potential second case" was out doing whatever and going wherever for who knows how long and they've got it "contained"...

If you believe that... 

I'll keep posting these stories when I see them for you guys. This is serious.

"Let me be frank" is usually followed by a lie. My niece works for the hospital system in the DFW metro and she has indicated that there is a potential 'real problem' starting there. I gotta talk my wife out of going up for a visit to Dallas in a couple weeks.
