Dallas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan died Wednesday morning at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, the hospital said.

The new measures at U.S. airports come a day after Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters that devising travel guidelines was in the works but nothing had yet been finalized enough to announce.

Symptoms generally occur abruptly eight to 10 days after infection, though that period can range from two to 21 days, health officials say.

Consider Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S. He was screened for the virus before flying from Liberia to the United States on September 19, but he didn’t show symptoms until he was in Dallas for several days. He remains in critical condition at a Texas hospital.
