The lone U.S. Ebola patient is in critical condition, the Dallas hospital that has been treating him reported Saturday.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas didn’t provide any further details about Thomas Eric Duncan’s condition and a hospital spokeswoman, Candace White, didn’t immediately respond to emails and phone calls. The hospital previously said Duncan was being kept in isolation and that his condition was serious but stable.

Duncan travelled from disease-ravaged Liberia to Dallas last month before he began showing symptoms of the disease.
