The first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States died in a Dallas hospital on Oct. 8, a little more than a week after his diagnosis exposed gaps in the nation's defenses against the disease and set off a scramble to track down anyone exposed to him. Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, was pronounced dead at 7:51 a.m. at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, where he was admitted Sept. 28 and had been kept in isolation, according to spokesman Wendell Watson. Others in Dallas are being monitored as health officials try to contain the virus.
