The Liberian government will prosecute Thomas Eric Duncan, the U.S. Ebola patient in Texas, for lying on a questionnaire when he left Liberia for the States. He reportedly answered "no" when asked if "he had cared for an Ebola patient or touched the body of anyone who had died in an Ebola-affected area."

According to NPR, Duncan did help an Ebola-infected pregnant woman get to the hospital in Liberia, which is likely how he was infected. Binyah Kesselly, the chairman of the board of directors of the Liberia Airport Authority, said that in regards to the questionnaire, "We expect people to do the honorable thing."

Texas health officials say Duncan came into direct or indirect contact with at least 80 people since he landed in the U.S. on September 20.
