Saving Bridal Shop in Ebola's Path

Saving Bridal Shop in Ebola's Path

An eerie glow from powerful ultra-violet rays that are decontaminating a bridal shop where Ebola nurse Amber Vinson tried on gowns with her wedding party can be seen inside the store.

INSIDE EDITION cameras were there as a decontamination team in full hazmat gear set up the devices inside the Coming Attractions bridal shop in Akron, Ohio.

Now, the doctor who treated all three Ebola patients at Texas Health Presbyterian is speaking out. Dr. Gary Weinstein fought back tears as he answered critics who say the hospital didn't do enough to save the life of patient zero, Thomas Eric Duncan.

He said, “I found that remarkably insulting. I don't know how better to describe that. The team here worked their tails off trying to saving his life.”

In an exclusive interview with WFAA-TV in Dallas, he talked about the moment he told Nurse Nina Pham that she had tested positive for Ebola.

He said, “She was scared. She risked her life to care for a patient and now she was afraid for her life.” 

In a video released by the hospital, Dr. Weinstein's voice could be heard comforting Nurse Nina.

Forty-eight people who have been living under court ordered quarantine for the last 21 days were allowed to return home Monday morning. They include patient zero's fiancée Louise Troh.   

In a statement she says: "We are so grateful that none of us has shown any signs of illness. Our hearts go out to the two brave women who have been infected by this terrible disease as they were trying to help him."

ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Richard Besser told INSIDE EDITION, “This is a really big day. The biggest thing is that Mr. Duncan’s fiancée and her family, they're the people that had the closest contact with him when he was sick they have been cleared. Not one of them has gotten Ebola.”

Despite the good news, Dr. Besser says the crisis is not over.

He said, “I don't think we're out of the woods and the reason for that is I think we're going to see more cases coming into the U.S.”
