Family of Ebola Victim Claim He Was Treated Badly Because He Was “A Poor Black Man”

Standard

The Hospital Labeled the Attacks as “Unfair”

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital have had to defend their care of Thomas Eric Duncan before he succumbed to the Ebola.  The hospital came under attack by Duncan’s family, who claim he received poor treatment because he was “a poor black man.”  According to the hospital, a team of 50 doctors and nurses took care of Duncan 24 hours a day.

One of the primary complaints was that Duncan wasn’t given the experimental ZMapp drug which other Ebola victims received.  The hospital said this was because the manufacturer didn’t have any in stock.  He also wasn’t given a blood transfusion from another Ebola survivor, because he was a different blood type.
