Thomas Eric Duncan, a man with Ebola who traveled to the United States from Liberia, died Wednesday morning at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, the hospital said. Duncan traveled from Liberia, where the virus is spreading rapidly to Dallas.

He was in critical condition after being diagnosed with the virus in mid-September. People who have had contact with Duncan are being monitored for symptoms. The people being monitored include those on the flight from Liberia to the United States as well as Duncan’s family.

Some members of Duncan’s family have been isolated and are being monitored to make sure they are not symptomatic. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that as of Tuesday, they had not shown any symptoms.

Several who have had contact with him were moved to a secure location Friday.
