Thomas Eric Duncan was the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. He is now the first person to die from the disease in this country. His nephew released a statement saying:
"Eric Duncan was treated unfairly. Eric walked into the hospital, the other patients were carried in after an 18 hour flight. It is suspicious to us that all the white patients survived and this one black patient passed away. It took 8 days to get him medicine. He didn't begin treatment in Africa, he began treatment here, but he wasn't given a chance."
CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen has more on the questions about Duncan's care.
