Texas Hospital Worker Who May Have Handled Ebola Samples Is on Caribbean Cruise

“A Texas hospital lab supervisor who may have handled fluid samples from Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan is on a Carnival cruise ship in the Caribbean and has been quarantined on board, officials said Friday. The Texas Health Presbyterian hospital employee, who set sail from Galveston on Oct. 12, did not have ‘direct contact’ with Duncan and ‘has not had a fever or demonstrated any symptoms of illness,’ State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement. Two nurses at the hospital, where Duncan died Oct. 8, have been infected by the virus – including one whose travel on a commercial flight to Cleveland prompted concerns over authorities’ handling of the outbreak in the United States.”
