Public health officials in Dallas continue to closely watch a healthcare worker who tested positive for Ebola. The worker was involved the care of now-deceased patient who fell ill after arriving from Liberia.

Fox News Radio's Eben Brown reports from Dallas:

This second case of Ebola here in Dallas, is not a contact of Thomas Eric Duncan under monitoring, but a nurse who cared for him at the hospital:

(Frieden) "It's deeply concerning that this infection occurred."

CDC Director Tom Frieden says isolation protocol was probably broken, that this nurse may have come into contact with the smallest amount Duncan's bodily fluid.

(Frieden) "That may have very large quantities of virus, and that's why the personal protective equipment and protocols are so important because as someone gets sicker, they get more infectious also."

Some neighbors of the nurse who contracted the Ebola virus say they aren't too worried about getting sick.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown with more:

As the nurse is now infected and isolated, a cleaning crew showed up at her apartment, drawing attention of neighbors as they decontaminated the place. Libby Franks lives nearby:

(Franks) "It's kinda scary, but I think they'll get it under control."

And will include the monitoring of anybody with whom this nurse had been in contact while displaying Ebola symptoms. That list so far includes only one person. The long list of people potentially exposed by deceased patient Thomas Eric Duncan still remain under monitoring, and will through next Sunday.
