Can dogs transmit Ebola to humans?

The Ebola diagnosis for Nina Pham is raising new questions about pets who are exposed to Ebola. Authorities in Dallas say they decided not to euthanize Pham's dog, but it is being monitored by animal control officials and the SPCA.

The dog that belonged to a Spanish nurse who contracted Ebola was not so lucky.

There are no documented cases of a dog spreading Ebola to a human. However, at least one study found dogs can get Ebola without showing symptoms. Anderson discussed this issue with former CDC disease detective Dr. Seema Yasmin and David Sanders, an Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at Purdue University.

Why removing an Ebola protective suit is so dangerous

It is still unclear how nurse Nina Pham contracted Ebola. An official tells CNN that CDC disease detectives interviewed her several times and thought there were "inconsistencies" in the type of protective gear that she wore, along with the process of putting it on and taking it off. Dr. Sanjay Gupta shows what that process looks like and why it is so difficult.

Anderson spoke with Dr. Phil Smith who is the Medical Director of the Nebraska Medical Center's biocontainment unit. They discussed the intense training and drills that his staff went through to prepare for treating Ebola patients, including NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo.

The video itself was recorded by one of the two children sitting in the back seat. Susan Candiotti looks at the record of the officer who broke the window. He has faced multiple excessive force lawsuits, all of which were settled out of court. But some are asking: why was he still on the job?
