US Ebola patient dies in hospital
Texas hospital officials said that the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola within the US has died.
Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, who caught the virus in his native Liberia, was being treated with an experimental drug in isolation in a Dallas hospital.
Earlier the US announced new screening measures at entry points to check travelers for symptoms of the virus.
It has killed 3,865 people, mostly in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, in the worst Ebola outbreak yet.
