The patient, dressed in shorts and wearing a surgical mask, just walked out of the facility and into the ambulance, which had been covered in plastic. That patient will be transported to Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, where Thomas Eric Duncan was hospitalized.

We are working to determine if this person is among the 48 people the Centers for Disease Control is monitoring. So far there has been no comment from the CDC, which already had a 3 p.m. press conference scheduled.
