5:35 pm
>> rose: zale chopped at two of the officers. one is in critical condition with a head wound. two other officers shot zale dead. governors from new york and new jersey took the extraordinary step today of ordering a quarantine of anyone flying into those states from west africa if they had had contact with an ebola patient. this follows the announcement last night that a new york city doctor who returned from guinea after treating ebola patients there now has the disease. now more from jericka duncan. >> reporter: craig spencer posted on facebook he was off to guinea with doctors without borders. the 33-year-old worked with ebola patients there for three weeks. guinea was the first place in west africa where the outbreak was identified. spencer left that country on fttober 14, traveled to brussels, and arrived in new york city on october 17. from that point forward, the doctor self-monitored, taking his temperature twice a day. on tuesday the 21st, he started
5:36 pm
to feel fatigued, but visited friends and traveled throughout the city. he went to a meatball restaurant in downtown manhattan and had coffee at a popular outdoor park. on wednesday the 22nd, he ran three miles in his neighborhood, and that evening, took the subway from his apartment in harlem to a bowling alley in brooklyn. after bowling with his fiancee and two friends, he then took an uber car service home. the next morning, between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m., spencer developed a fever of 100.3 and contacted health officials. thursday afternoon, ambulance crews rushed him to bellevue hospital, a scene captured by the "new york post." the hospital is a designated ebola treatment center. new york city mayor bill de blasio: >> in the last few weeks, the protocols have improved greatly. the ability to address the situation has improved greatly. and you see-- and i think just looking at the juxtaposition of what happened in dallas versus here-- it's an entirely different situation when you're prepared. >> reporter: health officials
5:37 pm
are in the process of testing and decontaminating the doctor's apartment. we reached one of his neighbors by phone this afternoon. >> reporter: now, all of the businesses that dr. spencer visited have been determined as safe, according to health officials. and in addition to those mandatory quarantines in new york and new jersey, new national protocols take effect monday. anyone traveling from sierra leone, guinea, or liberia into the united states must self- monitor for fever for 21 days. and, charlie, a designated daalth official will be in contact with those travelers daily. >> rose: thanks, jericka. dr. jon lapook is here. jon, new york and new jersey have talked about mandatory quarantining for people arriving
5:38 pm
from west africa who have had contact with ebola patients. but what about the rest of the country? >> reporter: well, the other states may decide to follow suit. but i just spoke to the c.d.c., and they're coming up with their own revised guidelines. and their concern is they want to be able to strike the right balance. on the one hand, they want to protect the general public, but on the other hand, they don't want to do anything to impede our ability to respond to the outbreak in west africa. for example, if you tell a health care worker, when you come back, you're going to be quarantined for 21 days, they may decide "i'm not going over." >> rose: people are still concerned as they read all these things about how they may contract the disease. what are doctors telling you to reassure them that it requires some contact with body fluids? >> reporter: well, i came across a study that i found very reassuring and that i'm telling people now. it was about a previous outbreak of ebola in africa, the same strain as now, and they looked at 78 household contacts of people with ebola, people who lived in the same house as somebody with ebola but they didn't touch them. and of the 78 people, nobody--
5:39 pm
nobody-- came down with ebola. they were living in the same house. so for the person who is worried they're going to touch the subway seat next to them and pick it up, this should be very reassuring. >> rose: we'll have the latest on ebola this sunday on "face the nation." i'll be sitting in for bob schieffer. our guests will include anthony fauci of the national institutes of health. scott pelley talked with some of the nurses who first treated ebola in this country. scott joins us now from dallas. >> charlie, we spoke to four nurses here at texas health presbyterian hospital, an intensive care nurse by the name of john mulligan, and seddia rose. you said before you put your protective gear on, you gathered yourself together. what were you telling yourself? >> as i was-- i was very frightened. i was.
5:40 pm
but... and i just dried my tears, rolled down my sleeves, so to speak, and went on about my night. >> pelley: eric duncan came into the hospital september 25 with a low-grade fever and was sent home. but three days later, he was back with a temperature of 103. nurse john mulligan treated duncan in his final hours in intensive care. >> by the time he had-- i saw him on october 1, his nausea and vomiting had pretty much subsided. that aspect of it was over. he had a rectal tube in place, so he didn't-- he had gotten so weak, he couldn't get up to the commodes anymore. so that was to help contain all of this very infectious body fluids that we were dealing with. on the first day, he didn't say much. he-- he was-- you could look in his eyes and tell he just didn't feel good. and we offered him words of
5:41 pm
encouragement. we let him know that we're here. whatever you need, let us know, and we'll get it. and we held his hand. and talked to him, and comforted him, because his family couldn't be there. i mean, you can't take that risk with this type of disease of veposing, you know, loved ones. as much as you want them there, it's just not a possibility. >> pelley: duncan died ten days after he was admitted. a few days after that, nurse nina pham became ill, followed by nurse amber vinson. but both of those nurses have recovered. >> rose: scott, what is the reaction from the community to the nursing staff? >> pelley: charlie, it's interesting. many, many dozens of people treated eric duncan here at the hospital, and they're running into some problems in the community. pp talked to one nurse who said her dental appointment was canceled. her dentist said, "come see me in december."
5:42 pm
another nurse said her niece had been kicked out of school. so there's a great deal of concern. the gestation period of the virus is 21 days, so it will be after that period of time that things begin to settle down again. >> rose: thank you, scott. you can see more of scott's interview with the nurses this sunday on "60 minutes." two nurses who caught ebola from duncan are now free of the virus. today, nina pham was released from the national institutes of health center in maryland and says she feels blessed. she later got a hug from president obama in the oval office and he thanked her for her service. u.s. and allied forces carried out a dozen air strikes today against isis targets in northern iraq. the u.s. military has said retaking the city will be a crucial item to defeating isis. doing so will require ground troops. holly williams met some iraqis you who have answered the calls. >> reporter: these policemen have volunteered to fight isis. they're nearly all from mosul,
5:43 pm
iraq's second biggest city, captured by the islamic militants in june. "isis doesn't frighten us," said edo hassan edo, a police sergeant from a village outside mosul. "our homes are gone and our holy sites are destroyed. we have nothing left to lose." they're determined, but most have no experience fighting a war. in contrast, the isis fighters they plan to take on are battle- hardened and fanatical. iraq's vice president, osama al- nujaifi, came to rally the troops. they received guns and training from baghdad, but so far, they haven't arrived. >> will fight with them when they start to fight. >> reporter: you're going to go into mosul with them. >> yes, myself. >> reporter: with a gun? >> yes, of course.
5:44 pm
>> reporter: a mile away, we found more men signing up, most of them sunni muslims, which is crucial. mosul is a mainly sunni muslim city, and isis was welcomed by some locals who were angry with iraq's government, which is irminated by shiite muslims. pe vice president told us only a sunni-led fighting force can win hearts and minds in mosul. >> now, after isis destroyed our mosque and killed people, many people, majority of mosul people, against them now. >> reporter: the reason policemen are being used is the iraqi military ran away when isis seized mosul in june. despite billions of dollars in american equipment and training. charlie, the vice president told us the policemen are urgently needed for the task of retaking mosul. but that what iraq really needs is a new army. >> rose: holly williams in erbil, thank you. there is breaking news in the case of hannah graham, the college student who went missing. and a sky diver dives faster
