Texas health worker contracted Ebola despite wearing ‘full protective gear’

Dr. Thomas Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has said that almost 50 people who had contact with a patient who died from Ebola are still being monitored for signs of the virus.

He said that none of them had shown any signs so far.

He said he expects the results of further tests on a health worker who treated this patient, and tested positive for Ebola in preliminary tests, later today.
