Thomas Eric Duncan went to a Dallas emergency room Friday and explained that he was visiting the U.S. from Liberia. He was sent home with antibiotics, according to his sister, Mai Wureh.
He returned two days later, after his condition worsened, and was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
