As CBS reports,

An afternoon news conference has been called in Frisco, a suburb of Dallas, to discuss a possible second case of Ebola.

 

The patient claims to have had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, referred to as Dallas ‘patient zero.’

 

It is not clear how the patient had contact with Duncan or if the patient was one of the about 50 people being monitored by state and local health officials.

 

The call came in shortly after noon from Care Now, 301 Main Street, where the patient was “exhibiting signs and symptoms of Ebola.”

 

The patient is being transported to a nearby hospital by Frisco firefighter-paramedics.

 

First responders are also examining clinical staff and other patients.  It is unknown how many other people may have been exposed to the patient.
