Dallas Ebola patient's death raises questions about his medical care

Dallas County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Monnig has been transported to Texas Presbyterian Hospital with possible symptoms of Ebola. Officials say Monnig had visited the Dallas apartment where Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan had been staying.

Thomas Eric Duncan is now the first person to die from Ebola on U.S. soil, raising questions about the medical treatment he received.

David Mattingly has the latest.

    How is it possible the family feels he was not cared for, when he did not complete the health questionnaire honestly before he boarded the plane. This has put an entire US population at risk, he knew he was sick before he left Liberia. He had taken care of a female stricken with Ebola prior to his flight. That being said all travel should be banned out of any infected area for at least 30 days, and re-evaluate again. The only way to get ahead of this is to contain, and not allow travel.

    I'm in search for a medical aide group that is going to Liberia. Because I see how understaffed those nurses and doctors are.
