The CDC says more than 94% of travelers entering the U.S. from West African countries impacted by Ebola travel through five airports. They are in New York, Newark, Washington, Chicago and Atlanta. New screening measures are about to go into effect at those airports. There are already questions about whether these precautions will work. Anderson discussed it with former CDC disease detective Dr. Seema Yasmin and Dr. Irwin Redlener, who is the Director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness.
The missteps in treating Thomas Duncan began when he was initially sent home from the hospital with antibiotics, even after the staff was alerted that he had recently been in Liberia. Duncan did receive an experimental treatment for Ebola, but only after days of lying in a hospital bed. Some in Duncan's community are comparing his treatment to that of NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo. Elizabeth Cohen takes a closer look.
Anderson has spoken to Thomas Duncan's partner Louise several times on AC360. Today she received the news she feared most. Pastor George Mason was the one to break that news to Louise and he described to Anderson his frustration at not being able to hug her in her moment of grief.
