nurse, wearing propertective ge despite that, she was infected during the time she was taking care of thomas eric duncan before he died here at texas health presbyterian last wednesday. this health care worker reported having a low grade fever friday night and drove herself to the hospital. cdc officials will be investigating just how all of this happened. it is critical. in the meantime, they will try to limit the number of people who have exposure to her. this new patient. they want to keep the number of health care workers who have contact with her. in the meantime, they are continuing with the decontamination process with her apartment and places she walked through texas health presbyterian. that work will continue as well as the calls for calm and explanation to people who live around the apartment complex not
too far away from the hospital in the dallas area. the main focus at this point is trying to figure out just what went wrong and how someone wearing all of the protective gear managed to get infected. that is the number one question that faces health officials here at the hospital and cdc investigators as well. >> ed lavandera, thank you. halfway around the world from dallas, u.s. troops going to battle on ebola where most of the depths happened in west africa. the american total deployment of ebola fighting troops is 334 with another 700 scheduled for later this month. new concern this morning about attacks on u.s. soil by isis inspired terrorists. the fbi and department of homeland security are warning law enforcement and news media they could be targeted by isis militants.
law enforcement officials tell cnn with a security bulletin is based on chatter and social media forums. not intelligence about a specific threat. in iraq, isis advancing on baghdad despite u.s. air strikes coalition. officials say isis is moving aggressively. dispatching fighters to anbar province. we have ben wedeman with the latest. ben, you point out how the isis fighters have been probing the capit capital, but how serious is a threat to isis to the capital at this point? >> reporter: at this point, it's just a theoretical threat. they made no effort to push into the capital.
our colleague nic robertson spoke to a sunni tribal leader sympathetic to isis. he told nic, it is not into taking over baghdad. a huge city. most shi'a who are hostile to isis. what they want to do is disable baghdad international airport which is to the west of the city which abuts anbar province. the loss or disabling of baghdad airport would be a symbolic blow to the government here. it is worth keeping in mind it is about eight miles from the airport to the area called abu ghraib. the army and police control by day, but isis operating there by night. the worry is that will be used as a foothold for some sort of
hostile action against the airport. until now, by and large, most of the action against the defenses of baghdad have been sporadic and light compared to the operations of isis elsewhere in anbar province where in town after town, they managed to take more and more ground. yesterday, they were able to kill an ied bombing the chief of police for entire anbar province. that was a serious blow for any attempts to bolster the control of baghdad and remaining 20% of anbar that's not in isis hands. >> ben wedeman in baghdad. thank you, ben. six minutes past the hour. hillary clinton heckled during a speech sunday night in san francisco. she was addressing the meeting of the american academy of pete

she is conscious and having difficulty breathing and her lungs are affected by the illness at the moment. they are seeing some signs of hope. this is how the spokesperson put it. >> translator: the amount of the virus teresa has seeming to be lowering. there is hope regarding her case. we have to be hopeful. a person who contracted ebola is always in critical condition. >> reporter: the experts believe the next few days are critical. a pivotal point. they believe 14 or 15 days after showing symptoms. teresa showed symptoms around september 30th. that timing would be around now. the patient can go either way. we heard as well officials here, the special commission in spain that is overseeing the ebola
crisis says the hospital does not have adequate space for the treatment of this illness. they say the area where they set aside for putting on and taking off protective equipment is not big enough. we heard from the european center of disease control believe the same thing, christine. >> nick roberts robertson in sp us. thank you. a passenger with flu-like symptoms started vomits on board a flight from jfk to l.a.x. >> the patient has been assessed by the los angeles fire department and los angeles county public health officials. there is no reason to believe this person has been exposed to an ebola virus. >> a miscommunication fueled this incident. officials believed the sick passenger had been to west africa. turned out that passenger was in south africa. fear of an ebola outbreak

powerful picture of a broken man. he had depression, suffered from post traumatic stress disorder and deeply filled with remorse and guilt from the killing of reeva steenkamp. she also made a case, a powerful indictment of the media coverage of the trial and how it was a character assassination of oscar pistorius. that all weighs into the judge's decision making in factoring in the sense of remorse as a mitigating factor on the sentence. we are expecting a few more witnesses for the prosecution and defense. the judge will then withdraw an issue of her sentence. that could be anything from house arrest to an indefinite number of years in jail. it is up to the judge's
discretion. there are many here who believe he should serve a long sentence because they believe this sentence of verdict of culpable homicide was too lenient. there are many pistorius loyalists who believe the sense of remorse should weigh in his favor. >> diana, thank you. 21 minutes past the hour. not too many nfl teams can visit the super bowl champion seahawks and come out on top. that is what the dallas cowboys were up against on sunday. could they pull off the improbable upset? andy scholes knows and has the details in the bleacher report next. when it comes to good nutrition...i'm no expert.

for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me.

the fact to remember is the kurds are not resupplied with ammunition and food and the things they need to continue the fight. we are seeing coalition air power used in the support. is that necessarily going to stem isis? it was a lull yesterday, that may have been them calling for reinforceme reinforcements. we have not seen an onslaught to change the dynamic on the field here. each day that passes, makes the kurdish forces perilless. thank you, nick. hillary clinton was heckled at a speech in san francisco. she was interrupted by a man in the crowd carrying a bull horn. she was addressing the academy of pediatrics. >> millions of our children are at risk. there are some people who miss important developmental stages.
