1:43 am
we're continuing our coverage of ebola in america. there are lots of new details in the case of the two infected nurses and their treatments. isrses and their treatments. help shed some light an this, dan childs. good to have you . od to have you >> and joining us to help shine some light on this, dan childs. good to have you here. let's start with nina pham, first of all. we got word that she's doing okay, was in good condition. we saw her actually walking when she was getting off the plane, going into a hospital unit. what does that tell us about her condition, the fact we can see her walking? >> it's all very good news. basically, you're seeing someone who is perhaps in the early phases but really hasn't started to experience the brunt of the symptoms yet. one thing we know about this disease is the earlier the bad symptoms come, usually the worse it is for someone. >> how do we know that our hospitals, even transportation here, new york governor cuomo is
1:44 am
doing these drills of ebola in the trains here. how do we know that our transportation systems are safe, our hospitals are prepared to deal with ebola? >> we're in the very early phases of this. the good news, one thing the cdc has done well is contact tracing. they've been able to keep track of everyone who has been exposed to that one index patient that we saw. that was duncan early on. they've been able to keep very good records as to who came into what kind of contact with him. as long as that surveillance keeps up, we probably never to have worry about our trains. we never have to are about the school buses, the schools themselves. but this is a very crucial step. this is the first line, and we need to hold it. >> i think we're all about, let's just err on the side of caution. let's scrub that plane down a second, a third, a fourth time. you may hear that and think let's just be sure. but at the same time, can that have the adverse effect of people hearing that -- wait a minute, they scrubbed it down four times. maybe they think there was a
1:45 am
reason. there was a chance of ebola surviving in that. is this some just alarmist stuff going on? some people even self-quarantining themselves who had contact with the second nurse. >> you can see that panic and fear. it can be a very damage thing. an the outside it may seem like you're taking a few more precautions, but what you're talking about, that's time they aren't at work. if you shut down a school, that's time kids aren't getting educated. at some point you have to draw the line and say this is what we can realistically be afraid of and this is what really is sort of wrapped up in the fear of this. sometimes it's very hard. especially if you are seeing it all the time, hearing it all the time, it's easy to fall into that vortex. it comes down to the science. scientifically, there are things we know we should be worried about and certain things we shouldn't. >> how can you be sure these hospitals or apartments or planes that are being contaminated that everything is removed off the surface. >> that has to do with the
1:46 am
people in charge of the actual cleaning and nature of the exposure. did you have someone that had active symptoms. were they just in the beginning phases or in a point where they were, for example, vomiting and they would actually be in the situation where they can transmit this bug. those are the things that really you need to take into effect to see if there's a real risk here or not. and then that guides what you need to do in order to decontaminate the area from there. >> everyone on such high alert. abc's dan childs, our managing editor of the medical unit. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. abc news will have more live coverage of this developing story later on "america this morning" and "good morning america." turning to something less serious, it's national pasta day. it's not that difficult to make your own noodles. see for yourself from our insomniac kitchen. in our next half hour, turning to innovative technology to stop high-speed chases in their tracks. new ways to end the pursuits, much less danger involved. you're watching "world news now."

3:14 am
transportation systems are safe, our hospitals are prepared to deal with ebola? >> we're in the very early phases of this. the good news, one thing the cdc has done well is contact tracing. they've been able to keep track of everyone who has been exposed to that one index patient that we saw. that was duncan early on. they've been able to keep very good records as to who came into what kind of contact with him. as long as that surveillance keeps up, we probably never to have worry about our trains. we never have to are about the school buses, the schools themselves. but this is a very crucial step. this is the first line, and we need to hold it. >> i think we're all about, let's just err on the side of caution. let's scrub that plane down a second, a third, a fourth time. you may hear that and think let's just be sure. but at the same time, can that have the adverse effect of people hearing that -- wait a minute, they scrubbed it down four times.
3:15 am
maybe they think there was a reason. there was a chance of ebola surviving in that. is this some just alarmist stuff going on? some people even self-quarantining themselves who had contact with the second nurse. >> you can see that panic and fear. it can be a very damaging thing. on the outside, it may seem like you're taking a few more precautions, but what you're talking about, that's time they aren't at work. if you shut down a school, that's time kids aren't getting educated. at some point you have to draw the line and say this is what we can realistically be afraid of and this is what really is sort of wrapped up in the fear of this. sometimes it's very hard. especially if you are seeing it all the time, hearing it all the time, it's easy to fall into that vortex. it comes down to the science. scientifically, there are things we know we should be worried about and certain things we shouldn't. >> how can you be sure these hospitals or apartments or
3:16 am
planes that are being contaminated that everything is removed off the surface. >> that has to do with the people in charge of the actual cleaning and nature of the exposure. did you have someone that had active symptoms. were they just in the beginning phases or in a point where they were, for example, vomiting and they would actually be in the situation where they can transmit this bug. those are the things that really you need to take into effect to see if there's a real risk here or not. and then that guides what you need to do in order to decontaminate the area from there. >> everyone on such high alert. abc's dan childs, our managing editor of the medical unit. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. abc news will have more live coverage of this developing story later on "america this morning" and "good morning america." turning to something less serious, it's national pasta day. it's not that difficult to make your own noodles. see for yourself from our
