It has been revealed to TMZ Liberia Magazine that the patient now identified as the first person to test positive for the deadly Ebola Virus Disease, is Eric Thomas Duncan, a Liberian national. Mr. Duncan is said to have traveled to the United States on an immigrant visa through his wife who is an American citizen.
The victim left Liberia on the 19th of September and arrived in the United States the next day. He started to show signs of the virus four days after he arrived in the US.
