(NEWSER) – After weeks of fear, there's now relief in Dallas: Around 50 people who had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan before he was admitted to the hospital have reached the end of the 21-day monitoring period without showing signs of Ebola.
The people declared risk-free include health workers, the paramedics who drove the Liberian national to the hospital, and Louise Troh, the fiancee Duncan came to the US to marry, reports the New York Times. "We are so happy this is coming to an end, and we are grateful that none of us has shown any sign of illness," she said in a statement released through her pastor. "Our happiness is mixed with sadness at the same time. ... We have lost so much, but we have our lives and we have our faith in God, which always gives us hope."
