Ebola Patient’s Mourning Newphew Compains Of Unfair Treatment
Joe Weeks, nephew of Thomas Duncan says the way the hospital treated his uncle was “unfair.”
In comments to ABC News, Weeks says his uncle did not receive the same level of care as Ashoka Mukpo, the NBC freelance cameraman who returned to the U.S. for treatment after being stricken with Ebola. He questions why his uncle wasn’t moved to a hospital where two other Ebola patients were successfully treated.
Weeks says the hospital gave them assurances they were doing everything they could do help Duncan, though they apparently weren’t able to get donated blood of the same type.
Louise Troh, Duncan’s partner, put out a statement after his death reading, “I am now dealing with the sorrow and anger that his son was not able to see him before he died. This will take some time, but in the end, I believe in a merciful God.”[su_csky_ad]
