Towels and sheets used by Thomas Duncan before he was diagnosed with Ebola spent days sitting in the Dallas apartment where he stayed. His partner, Louise, along with some of her family had until recently been quarantined inside that apartment. Gary Tuchman was there today when cleaning crews went inside to spray and remove items. What he saw is raising questions about the safety of those living nearby.
Anderson spoke with Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and asked whether enough was done to ensure neighbors were kept safe during the cleaning of that apartment.
Louise is the partner of U.S. Ebola patient Thomas Duncan. She tells Anderson that she is worried, sad and frustrated. She talks about life in quarantine and explains that she does not believe that Mr. Duncan is getting the same treatment he would get if he were American.
