Dallas Ebola patient's nephew: Duncan had 103-degree fever, released anyway

Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan's family tells CNN's Erin Burnett that Duncan had a 103-degree fever when a Texas hospital sent him home.

Duncan's family tells Burnett that on Duncan's first visit to Texas Health Presbyterian in Dallas, the same night he told staff he'd just arrived from Africa, he was sent home with a temperature of 103 degrees.

If true, it's the latest indication that the hospital missed major signs of a man with Ebola. CNN reached out to the hospital, but was told they are "evaluating the chain of events" leading up to Duncan's death.

CNN's Erin Burnett speaks exclusively to Duncan's nephew, Josephus Weeks about his uncle's treatment.
