their hearts into it ♪ ♪ it ain't the love of money or the way they might accrue it old or young we're having fun some body's got to do it ♪ ♪ that's the way that song goes. i thought it was a pretty good effort, all things kidded, really. >> he turned off the camera 30 minutes age. >> what? this is cnn "breaking news." this is "cnn tonight." i'm don lemon. breaking news, the second dallas nurse diagnosed with ebola arrives in an atlanta hospital. this as nurses at the texas hospital where she works are threatening to walk off the job over ebola concerns. that nurse, 29-year-old amber vincent day as go flew on a crowded airplane having a temperature of 99.5 degrees. even more disturbing, she alerted the cdc. why didn't they tell her not to fly? we are going to answer that
7:01 pm
tonight and talk to the nurse who blew the whistle on allegations of unsafe conditions at texas health presbyterian hospital. >> more breaking news tonight, the president has for a second day canceled his on travel plans to remain at the was to coordinate the nation's response. >> i want people to understand that the dangers of you contracting ebola, the dangers of a serious outbreak are extra ordinarily low. but we are taking this very seriously. at the highest levels of government. >> lots of breaking news for you tonight on ebola. let's get to it. joining me now our team of eexp. sanjay gupta, anderson cooper, and richard qwest here in new york with me. good evening, gentlemen. amber vincent, the second nurse to contract ebola at emory hospital. able to walk off the plane to her ambulance on her own power wearing a hazmat suit.
7:02 pm
you are learning new details about a call she made before boarding her flight to ohio that we had been talking about. what do you know? >> yeah, so you remember, don, she flew from dallas where she lives to ohio on october 10th. and to cleveland. and then was flying back on october 13th. now, remember she had been taking care of mr. duncan, had come in contact with him obviously a patient who was known to have ebola at that point. and, and, when she got on the plane, october 13th. before she got on the plane she took her temperature and it was, found it to be 99.5. so she called the cdc at that point. to, to check in. and got no guidance about not taking the flight. she said she was in cleveland about to board the plane. to fly back to dallas. they did not tell her not to fly did not give her any indication that that would be a problem. surprising done for a few different reasons, not the least of which when dr. frieden spoke
7:03 pm
earlier today based on the fact that she was self monitoring because she had been taking care of mr. duncan that she shouldn't have been allowed to fly at all. let alone, you know, get on that plane with the fever. temperature that was starting to elevate. some confusing messages i think there. i think she amber seems to have didn't right thing checking in with the cdc wasn't given proper guidance. >> we'll delve more into that. with a temperature of 99.5. what's the likelihood she could give ebola to some one else? >> a good question. it is unlikely. with the fever, alone. you know, you, you do look for somebody developing other symptoms. someone who, who, as you get sicker, you start to get more and more of the virus into your bodily fluids. that's when you become more innei infectious. the risk to public health, sal yenlt poi -- salient point, didn't seem like a risk to people. it's the contradictory guidance.
7:04 pm
should she have flown, not have flown? we are hearing different things. >> richard, the cdc is kidding changing the temperature threshold from 99.5 to 100.4. even with that, should, shouldn't some one there have said, you know what maybe since you have been in close contact with the person who died from ebola, you shouldn't get on the plane. >> without a doubt. what we are seeing tonight and what sanjay is saying and facts that we are hearing them is the fog of the situation. the chaos, the confusion, a situation that is not out of control. but where the systems and structures of government are working to just running to stay still. they will get ahead of this. it is very surprising that it hasn't happened already. but this is a classic case, don, of what happened with the nurse, when she called in. >> i want to get to anderson, you are in dallas where all this is happening. breaches of protocol. expecting there could be more nurses and health care workers
7:05 pm
exposed to similar circumstances to these two nurses, correct? >> it is very possible. 76 health care workers at this hospital according to cdc were in some way exposed to thomas eric duncan. two have tested positive. others are being monitored. how closely, the fact this second nurse, amber vinlt encen. able to get on a plane and fly after calling the cdc raises question as but the monitoring process. they're looking at that. i talked to one source tonight who is, has worked inside this hospital in recent days who describes, a lot of concern among the health care workers there. a lot of questions and not a lot of answers. not a lot of obvious protocols that are in place. certainly that something the cdc has been trying, trying to rectify. bringing in, more experts. trying to get as many people inside this hospital, who actually have experience on the ground working with ebola. which is something the hospital did not have before thomas eric duncan walked in the doors.
7:06 pm
>> sanjay, what is the rationale to bringing amber vince tint nt. why not treat her in texas? >> great question. one i am trying to get to the bottom awful d bottom all day long. there is no specific treatment for ebola. not like you come to this hospital behind me where amber its now. say we have a magic potion. that wasn't driving it. there was concern. were they able to contain ebola t in dallas. two health care workers who got sick from one patient. surprising talking to government officials tonight there is real concern over there, according to this official that because of staffing issues, because of furlougher use, because of people perhaps not showing up for work, and because of a possible walk out by nurses, that they were concerned they simply couldn't take care of another patient with ebola. this is a big hospital.
7:07 pm
anderson is standing in front of i a big hospital. it's got, a well-regarded hospital in so many ways. i have colleagues who work there. what i'm describing and what i am hearing about that. that is really concerning and frankly disappointing that that, that t. the idhe idea of staffi hospital was of concern. we heard they were on diversion earlier in the week. when they got a call. saying ycan you take a patient. those patients were diverted away. we are not in position to take the patients. >> anderson. stand right there you. mentioned you speoke to some on in the hospital. you spoke to kent brantly. treated for ebola where amber is tonight the what did he tell you about the care at emry and how it compares to what we are hearing about the dallas hospital? >> well, as you know, he received zmapp one of two americans who received that. he can't say for sure that
7:08 pm
zmapp, saved his life. and believes faith played a role. a missionary doctor. he believes zmapp had an important impact. there is no more of that. when i talked to nancy writebol taken care of at emory. earlier. she said she was not sure it was zmapp that helped her as much as follow-on care at emory. treating various symptoms and other issues. that come up. relating to ebola. treating if she needs liquids, flid fluids, she couldn't getten africa. don one thing that is stunning. sanjay and i were talking earlier tonight, just the lack of transparency coming from this hospital here in dallas. we have heard, really nothing from them about exactly what has occurred here. you know you have nurses union which has come out, with, with pretty shocking and stunning allegations what they say are reports from other nurses inside this hospital.
7:09 pm
about the lack of protocols. the hospital has not address that at all in the time this has been going on. not just a question of the media wanting answers. the question of giving out information that will help hospitals out there. stunned at lack of transparency. >> i do have you tell you, dr. daniel varga, executive vice president of texas health resources will be speaking tomorrow. we'll talk about that. there has been a rinse late this evening from the hospital. >> well, he is going to apologize for some of the mistakes that were made and misinformation given out. they're not actually addressing the very detailed allegations made by that nurses' union about, you know by the nurses themselves. i think that's critical for the hospital to come forward about. >> ebola screenings at big international air ports around the country.
7:10 pm
132 people who flew on the airline. they will be concerned. they will be concerned. and sanjay said the chances, are almost nil, of them contracting anything. they will find them. frontier has information in t. this is going to. this is a process where, airlines, hotels, hospitals, suddenly taken by surprise in these situations. and that's what has to be dealt with. >> thank you. thank you, anderson. thank you, richard. thank you, san jay. stand by, our breaking news. amber vincent rushed to emory university hospital in atlanta tonight. there is unease at kent state university in ohio. where she graduated and has a connection to three employees among them. deborah and kelvin berry, amber vincent's mother and stepfather. on the phone, eric mansfield,

breaking news, a top official at texas health presbyterian hospital is apologizing for failing to initially diagnose thomas eric duncan with ebola. says the hospital is deeply sorry. the apology comes in testimony that will be submitted to congress tomorrow. meanwhile, there are fears that nurses at the hospital may walk out over ebola concerns. joining me now is dr. lance plyler, medical director of samaritan's purse.
7:18 pm
with dr. kenneth brantly in liberia when brantly contracted ebola. he has recovered. and with me a registered nurse, co-president of national nurses united. and dr. alexander garza, st. louis university college of public health and social justice. deborah, important to ask you the first question about this. this is going to be, submitted by daniel varga, chief clinical officer, senior executive vice president at texas health resources. he says, apologize, he says unfortunately in our initial treatment of mr. duncan despite our best intentions and highly skilled medical team, we made mistakes. we did not correctly diagnose his symptoms as those of ebola. we are deeply sorry. also, he says, the hospital followed all cdc and texas department of state an health services recommendations in an effort to ensure the safety of all patients, hospital staff, volunteers, nurses, physicians, and visitors.
7:19 pm
protective equipment included, included water, impermable gowns, surgical masks, eye protection and gloves. since the patient was having diarrhea, shoe covers were added shortly there after. what do you make of that? >> it is one thing to apologize for human error, nurses understand that. we are all human. we make mistakes. but it is unforgivable that there was a lack of planning, a lack of preparation, and a lack of education. and that's what we heard from the nurses loud and clear when they, heroically came forward and talked about the conditions that they had to work under during the time that they were providing care for mr. duncan. so, i understand the apology, but, we are still angry about the lack of preparation, education and training. >> did he, is he correct here? is he telling the truth when he says that protective equipment
7:20 pm
including gowns? >> according to the nurses that came forward to us, we believe that that is not the case. >> okay. >> are nurses, let me get the other reactions then get back to you. dr. plyler, what do you make of this apology and then saying, you know, but we did provide them with, with equipment, and then we added things after, after -- after diarrhea and such? >> right. don, just -- i did spend the belt better part of the summeren liberia, implementing protocols, ebola treatment uniits. e the enormous time with taking care of patients with ebola, and accustomed to international standard of protocols. and i, i think there is -- a bar set for what is expected.
7:21 pm
i think we need to all be on the same playing field. we need to -- utilize the-- the international standard of excellence, for implementation of protocols and ppe. when i was in liberia, don. we, always very meticulously covered all of our skin. i would never enter an ebola treatment unit if any skin was exposed. and always when we, don and doffed, when we exited, doffed the treatment unit we copiously sprayed with chlorine. it is simple. we know it kills the virus. i think those again are -- in the protocols for international standards. >> that is exactly what is so flabbergasting abut th ing ing many people. you have a health system here in the united states among the best in the world these precautions are being taken even in developing countries aren't being followed here. i want to get to you, doctor, here is what the chief is going to say again tomorrow.
7:22 pm
in his apology. these are lessons learned and steps taken. diagnosing ebola is different from treatmenting ebola. communication is critical. but is no substitute for training. ebola extends beyond the walls of the hospital. dr. garza? >> right. well he is not wrong in saying all of that the diagnosis based on the case definition. and clearly. he met the case deaf ngfinition he showed up to the hospital the first time. it is tough to explain that away. as far as training and equipment with the nurses, goes, clearly, even if they met the letter of the law, it, it, it seems apparent that the nurses were not adequately protected with their garb. it is a good first step for the
7:23 pm
hospital to start addressing, some of the concerns. from the treatment of mr. duncan. >> uh-huh. and deborah, you know according to dr. sanjay gupta. one of the reasons, main reason. the nurse want to emory hospital. the nur nurses were going to le their posts for fear of ebola. this was actually the first i heard of it. nurses are more than willing to step up to plate to provide safe patient care. but they actually need the equipment the training the education and the practice using that equipment because this can be a life threatening disease. and it is not fair to ask those nurses not only to put their own lives on the line. but the lives of their family and their loved ones. and, i know, you know i was really proud of those nurses that came forward to talk about
7:24 pm
the -- the conditions that they were working under. because -- it's unconscionable. they would send the nurses in to provide care for mr. duncan with their skin exposed and having to do make shift wrapping tape around their necks. so, i am proud of the nurses that are trying to get the attention they need to be able to supply safe patient care. >> you are looking now at amber vincent. getting, going to -- going to the hospital in atlanta there. you see her in full body suit. arriving there by airplane this evening. >> it is unfortunate. if she had that protection when she was, providing care for mr. duncan. sunny wouldn't ha she wouldn't have been on the plane now, going to get treatment. >> thank you. invite all of you back. lots of breaking news. is it time to ban travel to and from west africa. ahead speak to a congressman who also happens to be a doctor.

7:41 pm
become trained. now let's listen to what they say the problem is. >> the nurses raised questions and concerns about the fact that the skin on their neck was exposed. they were told to use medical tape and had to use four to five pieces of medical tape wound around their neck that is not impermable and has seams. they had to interact with mr. duncan with whatever protective equipment, at the time he had copious amounts of diarrhea and vomiting which produces a lot of contape ju contagious fluids. >> health care workers on the front lines. nurses more than any one dealing with this. more than any one. and if they had those worries and concerns, why wouldn't i as a lay person not have those worries and concerns. >> they're in a different situation. first, assume what we are hearing is accurate. i think we should. they have every reason to
