In the report "Ebola Virus Disease Cluster in the United States — Dallas County, Texas, 2014" two errors occurred.
On page 1087, in the second paragraph, the first sentence should read, "On September 25, a man aged 45 years (patient 1), who had arrived in the United States from Liberia 5 days earlier, went to a Dallas County, Texas, emergency department with fever, initially 100.1°F (37.8°C) but increased to 102.9°F (39.4°C), abdominal pain, and headache (Figure)."
In the fourth paragraph, the first sentence should read, "On October 10, a nurse (patient 2) previously involved in direct care of patient 1 had a sore throat; on October 11, patient 2 went to the emergency department with fever (100.6°F [38.1°C]) and was confirmed to have Ebola by real-time PCR later that day."
