'Why Did He Have to Die?' Thomas Duncan's Family Outcry
Ebola panic is spreading across the country and around the world as Thomas Duncan's family asks why he couldn't be saved. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.
The nation is on high alert as a sheriff's deputy awaits the results of tests to determine if he has Ebola.
Michael Monnig was escorted from an ambulance by paramedics wearing protective suits. He wore gloves, a mask, a hairnet and an apron over his shorts. His sneakers were covered by booties.
Deputy Monnig served a quarantine order on the Dallas apartment of patient zero, Thomas Duncan, last week. He was inside for 30 minutes.
Monnig's son, Logan said, "We're very, kinda scared. Want to make everything is okay."
Panic over Ebola is spreading.
Workers who clean airplanes at LaGuardia Airport in New York City walked off the job today saying they don't have the training or equipment to clean planes that could be contaminated with Ebola.
Their union held a special training session advising their members to put on two pairs of gloves and remove them without touching the outside of the glove.
Now, the feds are ordering passengers from West Africa who land at airports in New York, Washington, Chicago and Atlanta to have their temperatures checked.
A type of scanner will be used to check the temperatures. You just point it at the forehead and it reads your temperature. But some medical experts say this is not a sure fire way to detect Ebola.
ABC's Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Richard Besser told INSIDE EDITION, "There's absolutely no way to prevent someone else from coming in with Ebola. You can have this infection brewing in your body for up to three weeks without showing any problems whatsoever. It won't be picked up by screening. Even if you tell the truth on the questionaire, maybe you didn't know the exposure you had to somebody. Ebola is coming to America again."
Back in Dallas, Duncan's distraught family is asking, "Why did he have to die?"
The 42-year-old is the first patient to die of Ebola on U.S. soil.
Meanwhile, Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American to contract Ebola survived. So did his nurse, Nancy Writebol and their colleague Dr. Rick Sacra.
The NBC cameraman who contracted Ebola in Liberia is now under treatment at a state-of-the-art facility in Nebraska, but Duncan didn't make it.
His pastor, George Mason says the family is frustrated.
"We all know that there were circumstances when he first went to the hospital that we wish would have been different," said Mason.
