DALLAS (AP) — A decontamination crew has completed its work at a Dallas apartment where an Ebola patient stayed prior to his hospitalization.
The hazardous materials crew finished cleaning the unit at Ivy Apartments on Monday.
About 140 barrels were filled with items taken from the apartment, including bed sheets, towels and three mattresses used by Thomas Eric Duncan before he was hospitalized. Some of the barrels were hauled away Friday and others over the weekend.
Most everything taken from the apartment will be destroyed but some personal items were saved for the family of four living there. The family was moved by authorities to another location Friday.
Duncan, who traveled to Dallas from Liberia last month, had been staying in the apartment before being diagnosed.
