US Ebola victim's family angry over his care

From Nine To Noon, 9:44 am on 16 October 2014

Josephus WeeksThe family of the first US ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, has decried his treatment - accusing the hospital of ignorance, incompetence and indecency. Mr Duncan was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in late September and died a week ago. His nephew, Josephus Weeks, says his uncle was sent home from a hospital emergency department with a high temperature and stomach pains, despite the fact he had made it clear he had just come from Liberia.
