The virulence of the strain is frightening.
MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) – Thomas Eric Duncan rushed to help his 19-year-old neighbor when she began convulsing days after complaining of stomach pain. Everyone assumed her illness was related to her being seven months pregnant.When no ambulance came, Duncan, Marthalene Williams’ parents and several others lifted her into a taxi, and Duncan rode in the front seat as the cab took Williams to the hospital. She later died.Within weeks, everyone who helped Williams that day was either sick or dead, too – victims of Ebola, the virus that is ravaging Liberia’s capital and other parts of West Africa, with more than 3,300 deaths reported.
