What happens to waste contaminated with Ebola?

Workers in hazmat suits carried barrels of potentially contaminated items out of Nina Pham's apartment. Tonight we are learning that the incinerated ashes of items exposed to Thomas Duncan remain in limbo. Louisiana's Attorney Genera is refusing to allow a waste company to bring those ashes to a landfill in his state. Drew Griffin has the latest.

    This is so ridiculous – any person with common sense knows that ashes can not contain any virus...what's the matter with these people?

    After incineration, the ash is not contaminated with the Ebola virus.
