Dallas officially marked the end of its Ebola crisis.
George W.Bush, former President visited the hospital to congratulate the doctors. She was one of the 177 people who were being observed for the risk of catching Ebola.
The Texas Department of State Health expressed that they are glad to finish this Ebola chapter with Dallas. The agency gave the good news through its twitter account.
Earlier, U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention informed that 176 of 177 people cleared the Ebola symptoms test. They were under observation for nearly 21 days for this particular purpose. 21 days are considered as the maximum time for an infection to develop a disease.
The residents of Texas began to worry when Thomas Eric Duncan was diagnosed with this deadly disease. Duncan was a Liberian man who came to visit America for a short time period. Unfortunately, the man died on the 8th of October in the hospital.
Moreover, Bush stated that last few weeks were really dangerous for the people who live in Texas.
Later on, two other Duncan’s nurses were infected with Ebola at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Luckily, the two nurses Vinson and Nina Pham made full recovery.
Thus far, Ebola has taken the precious lives of nearly 5000 people in Western Africa. On the other hand, up till now the disease has infected approximately 13,000 people in Liberia.
