What we know about Texas Ebola patient

Health officials say as many as 100 people may have had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in the United States.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we're starting with this very wide net, including people who have had even brief encounters with the patient or the patient's home," said Carrie Williams, a spokeswoman with the Texas Department of State Health Services. "The number will drop as we focus in on those whose contact may represent a potential risk of infection."

U.S. Secret Service Director Julia Pierson and others address the House Oversight Committee on Sept. 30, 2014, speaking to recent perimeter breaches at The White House.

Secret Service Director resigns

Not telling the President an armed ex-con was in an elevator with him, apparently led to the Secret Service director resigning.

The Washington Post reports President Obama first heard about it on the news and not from Julia Pierson.

On the heels of the United States' first case of Ebola, it was revealed Wednesday that the patient, in the States several days after arriving from West Africa, came into contact with school-aged children, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said.

"Some school-aged children have been identified as having contact with the patient," Perry told reporters at press conference.
