What is it like to treat Ebola patients from inside a 'space suit'

Dr. Steven Hatch is an infectious disease specialist volunteering at a clinic in Liberia run by the International Medical Corps. Before he left, he wrote about why he chose one of the toughest jobs in the world:

"Why do firefighters run headlong to the fire? To put it out, of course. Ebola is not really different, and it is my fire; along with many other colleagues, I go to put it out."

He spoke to Anderson about the challenges of treating patients from inside suits that do not allow physical contact and even prevent patients from seeing the full faces of the people caring for them.

Hope riding on ZMapp

The Obama administration has asked three labs to scale up production of the experimental Ebola drug ZMapp. Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol both received ZMapp before they were airlifted back to the U.S. Thomas Duncan and other patients were given other experimental drugs because there wasn't any more ZMapp. So far, it has not been studied in rigorous clinical trials and no one can say for sure that it actually helps patients.

Anderson discussed the hopes and risks of ZMapp with Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, former CDC disease detective Dr. Seema Yasmin and the University of North Carolina School of Medicine's Dr. William Fischer II.

Earlier this year, Dr. Fischer treated Ebola patients in Guinea where he was working with Doctors Without Borders. He wrote a series of moving e-mails that you can read here.

Whistleblower nurse: I would do anything and everything not to be a patient there

Nurse Briana Aguirre works at Texas Presbyterian Hospital, though her future there is now uncertain. That's because she is speaking out about what she says she's seen and experienced during the treatment of Ebola patient Thomas Duncan and others. She speaks to Anderson with her attorney Bob Kelly. Ms. Aguirre describes chaos, a lack of training, confusing protocols from the CDC and unnecessary risks that she says the nurses were exposed to on the job.

Briana describes how she wore Ebola protective gear that covered most of her body in two or three layers of plastic, but left her neck exposed.

She went on to claim that two weeks into the hospital's Ebola crisis, nurses like her did not have the same level of protection as sanitation workers at the hospital.

Briana says she is tired of the hospital 'blaming the nurses for being sick.'

Briana Aguirre and her attorney raised concerns about whether she would still have her job after the interview. AC360 received a statement form Texas Health Presbyterian saying:

"Her employment status is the same today as it was yesterday. We would welcome the opportunity to learn more about her observations when she is willing."
