First US Ebola case Thomas Duncan ‘critical’

The first person to be diagnosed with Ebola within the US has deteriorated from a serious to a critical condition, doctors in the state of Texas say.

Thomas Duncan, who caught the virus in his native Liberia, is being treated at a Dallas hospital in isolation, according to BBC.

Earlier it emerged that the flat where he lived is being cleaned by hazardous materials specialists and its remaining four occupants moved to a private home.

Some 3,431 people have died in West Africa in the worst Ebola outbreak yet.
