Nephew of Ebola patient speaks out: Duncan doesn't know where he contracted the virus

Thomas Eric Duncan, the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. is in critical condition tonight, and is receiving a new experimental drug.

This is the first time the drug is being used to treat Ebola in the United States.

But what do we know about Duncan before he came to the U.S. Did he know he had Ebola prior to arrival?

In interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Duncan's nephew, Josephus Weeks says his uncle doesn't know where he contracted the deadly virus.
