This morning, the CDC declared victory over Dallas’s Ebola outbreak, noting that they’ve managed to track down and quarantine everyone the Dallas Ebola patient might have had contact with while he was contagious with the disease. The several Ebola scares from the weekend have all cleared, and the one Ebola patient who “woke from the dead” after being placed in a body bag, appears to have never been dead in the first place. So unless you’re planning a vacation to Liberia or trying to bring about the Zombie Apocalypse, your concerns about bleeding from your eyes from a deadly foreign virus can be somewhat abated.
And, if you’re looking for a snappy place to live in the greater Dallas area, you may also be just in time to snag a cheap rental. The “quarantine apartment,” where Thomas Eric Duncan rode out the first wave of his Ebola in style is now squeaky clean and ready for a new inhabitant, NBC News DFW tweets.
You may have to supply your own furnishings, however, as most of the family’s possessions have been boxed up and are awaiting destruction. The HazMat crews that were assigned to do the initial decontamination saved a couple of things that were personal to the family, but the rest of it will be disposed of. You also might have to wait for new washers and dryers as some tenants reported that Thomas Eric Duncan used to the on-site machines during his stay.
