Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings reported that Amber Vinson, the second nurse who has contracted Ebola in the US was “more progressed” than Nina Pham, the first nurse to contract the disease on Wednesday’s “Situation Room” on CNN.
Rawlings said that he was told Vinson was “doing okay, but she was a little more progressed than Ms. Pham.”
He also stated, “I believe that there’s chance we’re going to get another one [case of Ebola]. I’m not happy about that. I’m not happy about the one we got today. We’ve all got to do a better job, and this city expects more of its officials and its government, and we’re going to work hard to, even if we get somebody else, that we’re going to close this down sooner versus later.”
Rawlings added that “a group of individuals should be in some sort of isolation, away from their families, for being close to the medical facilities. That’s what I’ve asking for from the state, that’s what I’m asking [for] from the CDC, to examine that.”
