The Centers for Disease Control says the virus needs to be stopped in West Africa, where it originated.


OAKLAND, CA (KGO/CNN) – As a second healthcare worker is diagnosed with Ebola, a nurses’ union is making some major allegations against a Dallas hospital, where the first U.S. Ebola death occurred.

Amid concerns about health care workers’ protections from the virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is making changes to the way it responds to Ebola.

“The fact that there was an infection in a health care worker is simply unacceptable,” CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said.

The CDC says it will send a team to any hospital with a confirmed case of Ebola to help the staff every step of the way.

“From infection control to treatment to environmental decontamination to waste management to training of staff, I wish we had done that earlier in Dallas, but we’re there now,” he said.

The heightened response comes amid some remarkable allegations from a nurses’ union. It claims the treatment guidelines at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas were “constantly changing.”
