12:04 pm
considering, though, stepping up screening of travelers coming from west africa into this country. that's the site of the worst ebola outbreak the world has ever known. the white house repeated today it is not considering any travel bans from that region. a patient in dallas, texas, remains then person diagnosissed with the virus here in the u.s. officials say he has taken a turn for the worse, fighting to stay alive, to quote them. we're get something of the first details on how ebola is ravaging his body. his eyes have turned blood red. the virus rioting blood vessels and tissues. he is too weak to sit up and can barely move his hand to visitors, and this just coming in. he is now getting an experimental drug. more on that coming up. a photojournalist freelancing for nbc news arrived at a hospital in nebraska for treatment. he came down with ebola while covering the epidemic.
12:05 pm
>> i begged him, please don't go, but there was nothing to do. he was determined. >> meantime, we have brand new video that you're seeing here from inside the epicenter of the crisis in west africa. this is the scene in library -- liberia right now. medical teams are faced with going door to door collecting corpses contagious with the vie rumps officials say the outbreak has killed nearly 500 people. far more sickened. cdc warns the total number of cases could reach 1.5 million in a few months. we have live team fox coverage. casey stiegel is in dallas. we want to begin with john roberts in atlanta, home of the cdc. john?
12:06 pm
>> reporter: 121 people dead in sierra leone in a single day so that white house meeting, a lot to talk about. the director of the centers for disease control should be briefing the president about as we speak. he will tell the president that the cdc is confident that it has closed the net of contacts around the dallas patient and if we're going to see anybody else get sick as a result of contact with him, it should be about now. we're right now at the high point of the incue base period. cbc is pleased to see the large number of suspect cases, the so-called false alarms,ported be howard university last week. it's a sign says the cdc that hospitals are getting the message any travelers from west africa who are sick should be treat ode with the utmost caution.
12:07 pm
administration said stopping the fro of travelers from west africa to the it's not something the white house will entertain. >> there already is a multilayered screening protocol in place in our transportation system. there are extensive screening measures on the ground in west africa to ensure individuals with symptoms of ebola, in other words contagious, cannot board international aircraft. >> now, the centers for disease control is training thousands of workers in country and the united states to deal with the ebola threat. they're in the currently training 60 people over a three-day period. we have been invited to the training session. we'll go there tomorrow and report back on that on wednesday. >> john, thank you very much. we want to take you now texas because they're have agnus conference there, talking about the patient. let's listen. >> a fever, no signs of illness, 100% were doing well so we continue to watch them very closely.
12:08 pm
besides the monitoring that take place, when the epidemiologists go and see them, they identified there's any needs they need, such as food, or some individuals where we had a large storm here and the storm took out the electricity, we moved them up on the restoration of power so we can get their electricity back on. so we're trying to make sure we provide them compassionate services and doing this in midst of a vest stressful situation for them, that we provide them the services they need. now, i know that this is scary. i want to reiterate, there is a science, and doctor freedman has done a good job empa sizing the virus. this uss west africa. this is a very modern city. we don't have a level of poverty they have in west africa that is very conducive to the spread of
12:09 pm
this disease. they don't have the teams of enteamologyists we have monitoring every single person on a daily basis. they don't have the modern healthcare system we have here in the united states. some of the thing wes take for grant, going into the hospital, individual being in a single room, having the gloves and gowns -- >> so we're going monitor this for any headlines coming out. you see there the texas health commissioner, david lakey, talking, and he is trying to take this down a notch in terms of what people are really fearful and panicking in some areas as you might imagine in dallas, texas, with the ebola patient at a dallas hospital, but trying to say there's a science behind this. let's bring in casey stiegal, our reporter in dallas. some things have changed today with regard to the patient, tell us about it, casey. >> reporter: we got word that patient zero, thomas duncan,
12:10 pm
well start to receive an experimental drug here at texas health presbyterian hospital. we don't know when that decision was made or why. his condition did deteriorate. he was downgraded from serious to critical. the drug helps prevent the virus from replicating inside the human body. so we'll have to wait and hear about that. thomas duncan's four family members still under quarintine today. moved from the apartment complex they had been staying in with their sick loved one while crews finish decontaminating the apartment complex. thankfully has you just heard from the press conference no signs this virus has spread any from thomas duncan, when the came to texas from liberia, no people are showing any symptoms. >> before i move on to the next topic, i want to know what the mood is like with people there in dallas you have been able to
12:11 pm
talk with. >> it is not one of hysteria. when you're talking to people, a major metropolitan area, something people are not just talking about. there is a level of concern obviously, when you hear about a patient with ebola being in your backyard, being treated at one thieves hospitals. but they really believe the government and the local officials here are giving up the full story when it comes to the fact this has been contained and has been isolated and no one else thankfully showing any symptoms at this point. so it's not a feeling of hysteria or panic in the streets. >> let's fast forward. the nbc photographer to a nebraska medical center. why there? >> it's interesting. it's one of only four facilities in the united states that has these highly specialized containment units. all hospitals around the country have the ability to put a
12:12 pm
patient in isolation for fear of spreading a particular disease, but the nebraska medical center takes this up a whole new level, a whole notch in omaha. the cdc helped create, design, and build these facilities, emory university hospital in atlanta has the same capability, the national institutes for health in bethesda, maryland, and then st. patrick hospital in montana. after his arrival in nebraska today, that nbc freelance journalist was taken off 0 the private plane at an airfield near the medical center and then driven in by ambulance. >> the nebraska medical center biocontainment unit is one of the safest places in the world for the patient to be. but it is also one of the safest places in the world for our team of highly experienced health care professionals caring for him, for his family, and for the general public. >> that is the same medical
12:13 pm
center that treated successfully treated an american doctor that came down with ebola in west africa. he has since been treated and released. >> hospitals nationwide are on alert for patients showing signs of ebola and the infection there, but there are two other potentially deadly diseases which doctors say could spread and very soon. up next i'll ask a doctor who helps over -- oversee hospitals over this threat that has the possibility of overwhelming in the nation's will -- medical system.
12:14 pm

12:15 pm
so i can reach ally bank 24/7, but there are24/7branches? it's just i'm a little reluctant to try new things. what's wrong with trying new things?
12:16 pm
feel that in your muscles? yeah... i do... try a new way to bank, where no branches equals great rates. hospitals across america are making plans for the possibility, no matter how small, ebola could spread in the united states. the threat comes at the same time hops are -- hospitals are on high alert for another disease, enterovirus, and flu season is just getting to start and hospitals could begin to feel the strain. joining me now is dr. michael anderson, the chef medical officer for critical care at case medical center in cleveland. also a consultant to the cdc and the department of health and human services national disaster medical system. you're doing a whole lot for a lot of people. >> a busy time.
12:17 pm
>> let's start with the triple threat. >> going into the fall we're always prepared in hospitals for flu season. some flu seasons are easier than others so we prepare for a lot of patients. there's another virus called intro virus d68 that ramped up in the summer but still seeing case. as you look the landscape we are always ready in the fall for a's viral season. now adding a couple viruses in, it's time for an abundance of caution to make sure we're prepared and prepared for what is called the surge. can we increase the number of beds to take care of this large number of patients. >> did you say surge? that sounds like war. >> well, not war. it's good planning. you want to prepare and if you overprepare that's a good thing, but if the hospital becomes full, if you're system becomes full, what are you going to do? the chances we have to do that are very low, but if you're a good hospital planner, good preparedness person, you're asking yourself those questions,
12:18 pm
what are we going to do if november gets busy? >> you just must scratch your head when you look at the situation created in dallas, texas. >> it's a very difficult situation. i would tie together a couple of the wonderful reports that you had earlier in the program. number one, i think it's a good sign that a lot of hospitals are reporting to the cdc and none of the patients have had ebola, and that's excellent. that's a lesson learn that we here at hospitals are making sure our ers're monitoring have you been to west africa, had contact with somebody who traveled to west africa. very important but really pivotal triage question. >> doctor, before i let you go out of all of this, what is your main concern? ebola is very remote in now. sort of pack dem nick mere in the united states -- pandemic in the united states. what do people need to know in terms of preparing for the season. >> the federal and nonfederal colleagues are doing a nice job of containing ebola and i agree
12:19 pm
with the previous reports. i don't believe there's reason to panic on that. i'm just a little concerned if we add d68, there's another virus, pediatric disease in our children's hospitals, if you add those numbers up and it gets really busy, it could be a very busy season for us. >> rsv, a respiratory illness that little ones get. i'm familiar with that as a march. dr. anderson, i appreciate your time. i know you're on social media so we may go back and forth. >> something weird is going on. that's the word from the family of a missing utah woman who left her apartment with no money no cell phone, no shoes. people with type 2 diabetes

12:32 pm
created a vacuum in which the islamic state has thrived. secretary panetta says the president should not have taken the occupation of ground troops off the table. >> i always feel that presidents as commander-in-chief ought to keep all options on the table and then enemy doesn't know what you may or may not do. i understand where the president is coming from and is not looking for another invasion of a country where you have 150,000 troops at war as we did in iraq. >> the white house press secretary says he'll leave it toes to judge the criticism but says the president was proud to have secretary panetta part of his team. wendell goler is he white house. >> they're walking a tightrope, thanking panetta for his work and denying his act okay --
12:33 pm
accusations and they won't put a timeline on the fight against isis at the state department, officials concede it could be a long one. >> terrorism is not new, not necessarily going away. we go after it wherever the threat of terrorism lives, and i think that will be our approach moving forward. >> no one here would suggest it's going to take 30 years to defeat isis but we have seen that group more from the remnants of al qaeda on the afghanistan/pakistan border and other splinter groups from that elsewhere in the world. >> i want to move to the vice-president. he is kind of a gaffmeister. he has been make something apologies, i understand. >> he did. over the weekend he apologized to leaders in turkey and the united arab emirates for saying the uae had funded isis for
12:34 pm
years, and that turkey had allowed its fighters to slip across the turkish bored irinto syrian both country were ingaged in the effort to topple syrian president bash shall al-assad, doing so at a time when president obama was washing that weapons might fall into the wrong hands, which they did. still, turkey and the uae are now part of the coalition fighting isis, and mr. biden was attacked from the left and the right. >> it doesn't mean that what was on mind wasn't true. >> while biden shouldn't have said what he did, he shouldn't apologize. that makes us look weak. >> white house praised biden for having the character to apologize and denied his comments caused significant problems for the antiisis coalition. >> thank you very much. now, let's get to the breaking news on the border. syria and turkey, and new major moves by isis.
12:35 pm
the islamic state militants raised their flag. 150,000 or more refugees have fled the fighting in syria to go someplace safer and now this is happening at the border. the could fall to jihaddists in hours. reason this is important, is the distance from the border. a local journalist says isis only planted a flag on one building on the eastern side of town. they're not yet inside the city center. a battle has been raging for control of this city for weeks now. mortars have been raining down and activists report dozens of deaths on both side. and take a look another our giant wall. kurdish forces say they're outgunned at this point and have been struggling to defend the city. airstrikes be in united states and allies have failed to stop
12:36 pm
the terrorists moving any closer to turkey. turkey's military has positioned its tanks along the border. but turkish forces have not moved into syria. syrian officials have said they would consider any such move an act of aggression. the government of syria says, don't come into our country. greg is live in turkey. >> reporter: the latest word we're getting tonight from the city is that fighting continues across the town. those black isis flags of terror you have been talking about, the clearer sign we have yet the group has a foothold in the city. we cannot say exactly how much they hold. but there's a whole lot of fighting. >> we have been pushed back two and a half miles by the turkish military from the syrian tone over there. you can see a plume of explosion there from an impact.
12:37 pm
and we can see and hear all the action going on there. you can hear it right now, between the isis terrorists and the brave kurdish defenders of the town. and as we watch all this action over there, we're also watching some tanks of the turkish military lining up on the hillside with the turrets trained on the train, ready to move in if they decide to. fending off the terrorist, we estimate a two to three thousand kurdish fighters and estimate their weapons are light, their ammunition is low. while they claim to still control the city, we hear they're ordering all civiliansed out. as for the u.s. airstrikes centcom has confirmed in the past 48 hours there's been another strike near the town but not enough for a lot of people we have been talk to. we have been watching ourselves, isis tanks and vehicles freely
12:38 pm
roaming around the countryside for the last five days. the turkish tanks are defensive, but they are not yet offensive. turkey is very reluctant to go inside and that is angering all the refugees. the word we're getting is there's fighting in the streets here. the kurd going against the turkish government. they want more help with terror, literally, on their doorstep. >> i want to keep you along if you can stay via satellite. it's really a great opportunity to have you join us from there, obviously. if you can see the smoke from where you're standing you're right in the thick of it. late brick in a former state department official, christian whiten, the author of the book "smart power: between diplomacy and war." christian, we have an opportunity for you to talk to greg. i'll ask greg question. greg, is this a p.r. move, they put their flag on top of one building are we talking about
12:39 pm
isis is really pushing forward and taking the town? >> i would say pushing forward from everything we have seen, we have been saying that for the last couple of days but according to our military experts on the ground, they are using precision, they're using tactical power. these guys are military. they've been hitting from all three sides and particularly on the eastern side of the city, where those flags have gone up there are reports of fighting right in the center. >> so, christian, how does this complicate our relationship with these countries? we have to fight isis no matter where they are. if they go into turk we, what happen then? >> well, that would be a very serious problem. that would be an attack on a nato country to not just washington that has to worry but all the european capitals which are loathe to get involvement you have britain, a shadow of its former self militarily involved, but the airstrikes
12:40 pm
don't seem to be having a dissuading effect on isis. 160,000 rev few jews have moved in -- refugees have been moving, and the isis taking parts of abu ghraib, continuing to contest towns just north of bo -- looks like the generals who have said that airstrikes would not be enough, were right? >> i think that is. ultimately you have to -- you have actual people to hold ground, and that's something we certainly learned in southeastern europe in the prolonged come pains in kosovo in the late 1990s in iraq you need a sunni army to fight sunni isis. it's clear the iraqi army in
12:41 pm
baghdad isn't going to do it. they've continued to lose almost every engagement they fight, and the same is true in syria. so, these airstrikes, which frankly aren't that -- don't seem to be having an effect, and we're talk can bat couple hundred trucks and a couple hundred people killed. but this is a major arm y. with real tactics, real discipline, real leader, al-baghdadi, and blowing up trucks and killing a few people isn't going to make a huge different. >> and they have our equipment they're rolling with, too. greg, villages, i read -- we did fox report last night and it was breaking news they were emptying out villages close to the border in turkey. where all those refugees have gone. what are hair going to do with 160,000 people. >> has added to the 1.5 million refugees already here. turkey has a big load, as do all the other neighboring countries. they're calling for a free fire
12:42 pm
zone, a safety area for the refugees to go back inside syria because they want to get some of these people off their hands. right now they're very busy. make one point how strategic this town is. strategic because if the isis group can get ahold of this town, it will have free rein through swaths of territory from the outskirts of baghdad, from mosul, iraq, to aleppo, a major city in northern iraq, that's strategic, and symbolic because they have done this in the last two or three weeks and the last two or three weeks in which the u.s. has stepped up their attacks. despite that they've gone forward, harris. >> we have this rare opportunity to have you guys talk to each other. the lateness of the night. christian, your question for greg. >> greg, you're in the field but as far as the turks go, these decisions are m the
12:43 pm
capital of ankara. have you sensed a groundswell, change with the fact the is on their period center -- enemy is on the border? turkey has played footsy i with the muslim brewer brother had and ham mass. will this bring a change. >> you have to believe that. one mile across the border, 20 miles from where we are standing right now, is isis, is one of the most dangerous terror groups in the world, and they're controlling cities and villages. right across the border in new york, in new jersey there is isis. it is unbelievable but they're playing a double game here. problems with the ethnic kurds and don't want to be helping the ethnic kurds. they have problems withthe asaud government and don't want to be hitting out at isis and then helping the asaid government in syria. so there's a lot of different levels being played here, a lot of different tactics being used
12:44 pm
by the turkish government. the fact of the merit 20 miles from where i'm standing right now is a blood thirsty terrorist group, maybe the most dangerous in the world. it's eerie. >> agreeing palkot on the ground. thank you very much. let's bring back christian whiten. i want to talk to you about something that happened and i asked a reporter earlier. does it matter what a vice-president would say about relationships that we have in middle east? vice-president joe biden stepping in it and then apologizing for worded he said. were they true? >> it does matter, actually. the vice-president is seen as a significant figure, especially in national security. that changed al-ironically with al gore who made the office of the vice-president a more significant node on the national security council circuit went the white house, and cheny beefed than up to insult the
12:45 pm
uae, one country that is actually doing something, that is bombing isis. it's a shame and there's a cost it to. >> thank you very much. we're right back on the news deck after this. nineteen years ago, we thought, "wow, how is there no way to tell the good from the bad?" so we gave people the power of the review. and now angie's list is revolutionizing local service again. you can easily buy and schedule services from top-rated providers. conveniently stay up to date on progress. and effortlessly turn your photos into finished projects
